Where is that sock? Where can it be?

Where is that sock? Where can it be?

Smelly socks upon our feet smouldering amidst the sweaty heat, covering heals and smothering toes.. one’s  tootsies would be cold without those

We wash them daily everyday in Mother’s machine they spin and sway, yet when the washing cycles spun and done..it’s strange but there’s always one sock is gone!!

So we find it in amongst the drum our searching for the sock is overcome.. filling the dryer with all the wet clothes.. the dial is turned on, it’l soon dry those

You’ve finished your dishes from after the tea, the washing should be dried now completely.. but after opening the hot door and taking it out.. there’s one sock missing without a doubt!!

Yet you’ve folded the lot and put it away all nice and cleaned for another day, nothing needing ironing, twas just night clothes with towels, socks and knickers, you don’t iron those

Where is that sock ? Where can it be? It’s got you demented “Oh woe is me” so you have yet another odd sock in your drawer, this has happened alot of times before

Does the dryer gobble them ?  there’s always a missing sock!!
Then two weeks later you discover it inbetween your toddles frock

The mystery of the missing sock is every Mother’s nightmare..tho you clean lots of socks daily, you are always left with an odd pair

Jillian!! 
I'm sorry, I didn't realize you were in the sock contest, also! I just posted my entry, too. I loved yours!(Aside: what kind of strange person writes of socks??!!). 
Socks are amazing, aren't they? I think if everyone wore smiley face socks every day,  the world would be a much better place, there would be no wars, or discontent, and our feet would be warmer. My first love was a sock puppet named Verna McFelters III. She was lovely, with blue yarn for hair, and some of those googly eyes glued on. I loved her until my mom threw her in the washer, and then she looked like a one-eyed freak with straggly hair. Sigh. 
Great poem! You should definitely come in a high position in the contest. 

Matthew.

I will, Ms. Jillanator, 
I've just been so busy at work that I haven't had much time to be on. I'm sorry if I've missed some of your brilliant, and wacky ditties, but I will ketchup...I mustard to, or I won't be able to relish your poems...for some reason I'm craving a hot dog now! lol. 
Thanks!

LOL. 
Yes, quite saucy, as a matter of fact, when I was on Hollendaise in the Prego Mountains of Chile, I encountered a Barilla(it's a combination of a bear and a gorilla), and he condimented on that too! lol. 
Thanks!

Lol...Hi Jill....I can not compete with the sock poems going up, so I am just enjoying the entries...You have the same problem I have in my house with socks being lost in the dryer, and my children going to school with mismatched socks!  My daughter, Ava, likes to use them on her hand for a character named, "Meep" that she made up as her friend....He is suppose to be half ostrich and half dinosaur....lol  We take our socks for granted....and with cold weather coming, we will really appreciate them on our tootsies.  I loved your entry.  Thanks for making me laugh and smile today!  xo ;)  Love n Hugs

Get to work! You have a brilliant mind!

Marionette, 
Thank you my friend! I really appreciate you saying that. I like creating laughter on here...I tried creating it in a laboratory setting once, but it just came out like Flubber, so now I have to use words. ; ) 
You're great Marionette!
