A shoe is gone, one of a pair
that once both belonged to me.
Who loses a single shoe, and where?
I look and look, but do not see.
It’s missing maybe for forever;
must have walked off by itself.
See, shoes these days are very clever,
won’t stay in place upon a shelf.
Oh never mind, I just found it,
it’s been here underneath this chair.
Ignore the part the dog clearly bit.
I wonder who could have put it there.
