Hard Soles

Put on my hard soles today

Don’t remember where I got them

Black leather shoes like the boss used to wear

When he put his feet up on the desk and fired people.

 

Put on my hard soles today

They’re in better shape than me.

I don’t walk easy in them

More like a plod.

 

Put on my hard soles today

Trudged through newly fallen snow

Not much traction in the heels

The cold came in too soon.

 

Took off my hard soles today

Put on the running shoes

Bounced around the block

Two inches off the ground.
