Red Wet Shoes

Red Shoes

Rain brings showers to cool the hot land
Splash, splatter, drip music fills the air
Little Yog jumps free in puddles anew
Wet mud soaking clothes and red shoes


The party ends soon, he has to be confined again
Rinse and clean hands, feet and face
Clothes go soaking in the warm tub
But everyone forgot the wet red shoes


School time, next morning
Red shoes are still wet and muddy
Mummy said, “No wet shoes to school”
Yog heart breaks
He collapses on the floor
No other shoes in the world are right for school


There is rain again today, streaming down Yogs face
The shoes crying on the steps dripping water
Best friends denied the right to be together
No other shoe has the right to school


Desperate Mummy, pulls out a Candy
Trade Candy for Shoes please
Yog sighs, wipes his face and reaches for the candy
Yog forgets shoe
Yog off to school


Shoes are happy too
They  were loved enough to be fought for
They hold the power to get candy for Yog
