My Big Toe



Have you ever wondered Why your big toe is big? Does it help with balance While doing the jig? Can you imagine If all toes were large? It would seem like walking On a very large barge Strange how everything Seems the right size Cause what if your arms Were as big as your thighs? Big toes are great For testing your bath Or counting to ten To help with your math One thing's for certain They're just the right size For stirring your soup Or tying bow ties This poem's for a friend A new star in my sky Sure hope she will like it It's my very best try! © Jack Ellison 2013

    You poem has a great tone. It must be your intonation. Nothing for which you must atone. Do you vacation in Boca Raton? You have a gift for humor, sir! I hope you impressed your friend and can find the mistletoe. Best of luck, and thank you for being such a good humor.
