Polish me twice, Shine - shroud for a broken shoe. Dump me on next pay-check, Bid me adieu. Patched sole hides, Holding the stitches tight. Tattered, broken; yet smiling, I sympathize with your plight. Feet sob often, Incessantly complaining to me. Why can’t you end? ...Its naked odyssey. Throw me on next pay-check, You deserve a new pair. Don’t hold onto your misery, Now even I’m beyond repair. Four bucks you earn, Aren’t enough for feeding two. I ponder, My Master! How would you buy a new shoe.
