Too Many…

Pass me the green ones hon, would you please?
Not the celery, much too light.
Not that moss, much too tight.
Not the mint, it won’t match with what I’m wearing.
Not the Jade either, it’s much too daring.
No, the pine, the hunter nor the apple will do.
Geesh! Not the Khaki! What’s wrong with you?!
Oh, I’m so not wearing the alpine,
I’ll not have folks think I’ve lost my mind!
No! Not the forest, not the teal, not the pea.
Just what are you trying to do to me?
The GREEN one! No, the green one right there!
I’m beginning to think, you just don’t care…
What’s the difference?! That’s lime not chartreuse!
What do you mean I have too many shoes?


No, I do not have any shoes in the above colors (yet). 😀

  1. Haha this is so cute. I have one pair of dress shoes and my husband insists I can’t need more than that considering I can’t walk in them anyways he likely has a point lol

  2. Really enjoyed reading this! Very fun and playful. Reminds me of Ken Nordine, a bit. I especially love his spoken word on colors and their fictitious, corresponding personalities. If you haven’t heard of him, I think you’d like this stuff.

  3. Picky, picky, picky, as I trickled through your closet, enjoying every rejection…since I too do not have many shoes 🙂 This was a delightful read for me after putting pencil down. Thank you for the tongue and cheek smile.

  4. I’m always pleased when I come across a poem on a not-so-serious topic. Some people take writing sooooo seriously.

  5. Thanks Beca, Ravenblack, ZQ, ALIVE A, Thoughts and Miriam, it was not my footwear, but it was my pleasure.

    Virtual – I so agree. As much as I enjoy “Jabberwocky”, even that seems like too much work to compose. Simple laughs are best.

    Oh! A smile, aye, a laugh!! From the Recluse, nonetheless? A most gracious bestowing indeed!

    Much thanks again all!

So? What do you think?
