The Story of a Shoe

Through thick and thin and back again
and everywhere with you, I’ve been.
Dirty and pink and plaid and worn,
with soles and sides and laces torn,
I’ve traveled with you and your kin.

I’ve climbed and Alaskan mountain,
walked near the Pacific Ocean,
and led you through fields full of corn,
through thick and thin and back again.

I have seen monuments, and then
walked down the mall in Washington
D.C. and seen where oaths were sworn,
but now it is the time to mourn,
for others’ journeys must begin
through thick and thin and back again.
