On Bondage of Toes

Ode to the Toe Ring



Let's pause a while to cogitate



On things we don't oft contemplate



The value of the bare and simple toe



Whose beauty like a native wild



We cannot leave so undefiled



And so a new adornment trend must grow



***



To fashion's dictate toes must bow



Their freedom we cannot allow



And so with decorous bands we gird them in



and jailors in their vanity



push boundaries of sanity



to perpetrate this vain and pointless sin



***



and so I follow absently



in roles my peers have cast for me



to trap in shackles bright these digits bare



But now with jewel encrusted toes



with studded ears and perfect clothes



I realize I'll have to fix my hair

I knew we'd corrupt you sooner or later, Babe!

Can you write one about ugly toes? I contemplated mine and discovered there's a reason I don't look at them very often.
Great poem, Babe.
