There once was a silly girl I knew,
Who had quite an obsession with shoes!
Tennis, sparkled, chunk heels alike,
Even shoes that said "Goooo Vikes!"

Red, yellow, shades of purple too,
My lord, her closet was such a zoo!
On no occasion will her feet be bare,
Because, oh my gosh, she has 56 pairs!

Once I asked her, "Mandy, why?"
And she responded with a sigh,
"Well Krista, the answer is plain,
Shoes are what keep this girl sane!"

The years went by and the shoes increased,
Jeez, will the pile of shoes ever cease?
By the very ripe old age of twenty four,
Her shoes reached from ceiling to floor!

The saddest part, I regret to say,
Is that Mandie went missing on that day.
She was kidnapped, some people believe,
But I think she drowned in a shoe filled sea!

ROFL, Ah, I love a little silliness!  You sure you didn't mean "Zona" instead of "Mandy"?  My mom has soooo many shoes?  What is up with that?  I got three pair, work shoes, normal shoes, sandles. Bingo, bango, boomo.  That be it.  LOL.  Great poem

Lol....thanks for a good laugh! As for me, I am most comfortable bare foot but if I wear shoes, I wear very simple ones!

Love and hugs,
Lizzie

Your poem was indeed funny, but it is somewhat true. I own at least 60 pairs of shoes, I can never have too many! hehe
