Farm Boots Feel Your Pain

This poem amused me 🙂

Angry rain boots

You make me walk through filthy streets

You only want me when it’s cold and rainy

You love all of your other shoes more than me

You thought I didn’t hear you when you said you only bought me because I was cheap

I heard you.

I also heard you when you said you wished you could wear heels today

Were they there for you that day when you fell into the pile of leaves?

Were they there for you when you fell off the dock into the lake?

No. I was.

Trying to take a stand when you’re just a pair of rain boots

When all you’ll ever be is just a pair of rain boots

Maybe next time you have an embarrassing mishap

You’ll see that the only one who helps you through it is me.
