~ ARGYLE ABHORRENT ~

Yo, maid Marion
The wife says I must contribute
To this sock-full of poetic carrion
Where poems find their dying attributes

In this palace of cordiality
Between writers of disrepute
Where minds of beautiful banality
Put forth sock drawers of cotton salutes

I find myself in such good company
That I smile happily with each poem en route
To the heart of Cosmo's totality
Where they might find a place for their "reboots"

I pray that in each of your dresser drawers
Awaits a slew of socks (argyle) that you abhor...

Not a curse of Argyle socks!  Say it isn't so!  Aaaagh!  Come on T, we are all just having fun and trying to prove as poets that we can write about anything just for the sake of being creative and writing....I love your line, "put forth sock drawers of cotton salutes"...lol ....That is original...See, even sock poems can be poetic.  I don't think I will look at socks the same any more...All these sock poems make me so sentimental over cotton warm comfort on my feet...sniffles.... Lol....I am glad you decided to join in the fun.   xo Love n Hugs

Tony! 
Sock magic, that's all I can say. You have captured the essence of socks(albeit dirty ones. lol) wonderfully. Some people just seem to have an almost kismetical connection with woolen footwear, and you've proved to be one of those hosiers. Loved it. 
Marion would be proud of you, and you're definitely a front runner for the Smelly Sock Citation Award. 
Great job!

My Dear Tony,

Your whimsical poetic humor
As usual, really rocks
But I have to take exception
For I love my "argyle" socks

Love, Rockets, and Beautiful Argyles,
Larry xxx
