Odd socks

Why do socks seem to disappear?
 I can’t find a matching pair!
Not wanting to develop a syndrome
When anyone comments on my odd flair,
I retort with apparent savoir faire:
Yes I’ve another pair jus’ like’em at ‘ome!

    I wish I knew why socks seem to disappear. I have a hard time keeping up with mine. This made me smile because immediately I thought about all the time I keep looking for my socks. I enjoyed this.

    Yes, it's quite perplexing isn't it? You go through your socks drawer and there's nary a matching pair there! I have thought of attaching one half of a press-stud to each sock and locking them together before they go in the wash - but that would be way OTT!Glad you found my short musing amusing.

    Hello and thankyou. I have tried several poetry sites. I am most impressed with this one and the efforts of its contributors.
