The laces are short and too hard to tie.
The soles are slippery and I often slide by,
The spot where I wished the walking to stop,
So I’ve learned to make a quick reverse hop.
Which makes me look silly because when I land,
My feet spread apart and I need a hand,
To keep from sliding and doing the splits.
These new shoes are giving me fits .
I should throw them away and get a new pair,
But these shoes are so cool, I wouldn’t dare.
