What’s Feet Got to do with it?

cropped-img-1.jpg

Get yr feet off the table I was told.

Get yr feet off the pouf.

And I thought, what the ^%$#@ ?!?!

What does it even matter if I dangle my feet

from the chandeliers?

What’s feet got to do with it anyway?

But somehow they alwats march in.

I often start off on the wrong foot these days

Step on people’s dignity

Tread on their toes

Or worse put my foot in my mouth

A mean anatomical feat if ever there were one.

So now I keep my feet firmly on the ground

Close to each other

And far enough from my mouth as possible.

This seems to keep people happy.

  1. You don’t know how much trouble I’ve had with tjis poem: watering it down, cutting out sections afraid of what people might think then days later — I took the post down the first time — I thought, the hell with what people think of me, this is what happened, this is my reaction, I’m standing by it!
