Shoes ©

Baba
Stewarton, Scotland
2005

Shoe shopping women are a disgrace and a scandal
They’d trample through crowds for a boot or a sandal
They hop into shoe-shops and snuffle around
While their poor male partner just stares at the ground

They seem to hold this deranged mental image
That incorrect footwear is assured fashion slippage
Their sanity killed on the alter of vogue
There’s limited mileage to be had from that brogue

That’s not for them the easy purchase
They’d like to be shod as if a duchess
So they search for perfection in footwear production
While their partners patience is pushed to destruction

Men are much simpler we're not too complex
There’s nothing about us for you to perplex
We know what we need in the form of a shoe
And if we don’t find it, then next best will do
