Gotta Wear my Shoes

Gonna leave my bed, jump to my feet

Gotta grab my shoes

Slip em on my feet

Gotta face this world, and all its ire

Gonna wear my shoes

Through the mucky mire

When facing the giants, up in my face

Gotta fill my shoes

Gonna win this race

Going to win that race indeed! Did you have this ready and waiting? Don't you hate it when sometimes the mire's so thick it sucks the boots right off you? Whoops...guess that's another poem :) Great write!

The pop up ad with the picture of Warren Buffet is an amusing companion to this poem -- did you plan that? :-)

I spent the morning reading about the symbolic meaning of games. You did a great job of showing me the role shoes can play in taking on the forces that overwhelm and win.
