The Missing Sock

Laundry's a tedious task
that is just what I think
Curious, and I must ask 'cause this has me on the brink
Why is one sock always stubborn?
Why does it leave it's partner behind?
When matching 'em up I am so forlorn
are they just trying to be unkind?
Maybe they think it is hilarious
to play this prank on me
I do not think it is funny
Together these socks must be!!
Eventually they all get together
Maybe they party when I'm not home
Do they plan which sock will sneak away next?
Do they have a plan where it will roam?
It sure makes laundry exciting as I play this guessing game
Maybe these woolen beauties
don't want my interest in laundry to wane.

    Thanks for appreciating my comical take on the laundry experience! This poem was a fun one for me to write. If it made a few of you smile, mission accomplised :D

    Congrats Kimberly on "The Missing Sock" being featured. I thought this was a woman's way of driving her man up a wall. My wife can put 4 pairs of socks in the wash and when they come out of the dryer, there are 3 pair and two that don't match. Vince

    A delight to read this a.m., Kimberly. I tell you, they're sneaky, alright. When you're looking for them, they're impossible to find. However, when you're not, there they are! Audrey
