Fuzzy Socks and Carpeted Stairs

Fuzzy socks you are so soft

And warm against my peau (rhymes with go – French for skin)

Staircases lead me up or down,

Wherever I need to go.

 

Fuzzy socks and carpeted stairs

Should never really meet.

A barrier should be worn betwixt the two

And fit snugly on the feet.

 

For when fuzzy socks and carpeting join

They become a little slick.

And once headed down the stairs

Your foot will suddenly slip.

 

Gravity and inertia will gladly

Join the fun.

As fuzzy socks and carpeted stairs

Come together as one.

 

As hard as you will clutch

and find something on which to hang,

You’ll ultimately end at the bottom of the stairs

With a loud and ungraceful bang.

 

The preceding poem is based on a true story which happened only an hour or so before the text was written.
