Buy Some Trainers

We went to buy some trainers it’s trickier than you think
By the time we sorted a pair out we needed a stiff drink
It used to be so easy when I was a boy
A pair of plimsolls or some bumpers it really brought me joy

But now there is so much choice, it’s really hard to choose
No wonder after all the stress we had to have some booze
There’s high tops, converse, training or simply just running
We just wanted a simple trainer I really am not funning

There’s Nike and Adidas, Lonsdale and Reebok
Once you have decided remember that you must buy a trainer sock
These come in different makes and they must be right
Cause if you get it wrong they won’t be worn, even at night

Life gets so complicated the older that we get
For just a pair of trainers we got into a sweat
Please can we not go back to a simpler life?
So that we won’t stress over trainers neither me or my wife

    Far too many choices these days, I work in an optical place, and yo wouldn't believe how hard it is for people to pick a pair, I often hear, "I just don't know" well shared my friend, xxx

    I liked it! It is a happy and Christmas poem. Well; In your position I would prefer a nice, mostly white colored pair of sneakers made by Nike or Adidas. NOT with an Air-sole! The socks must be made of cotton, with a size # equal to 9-11, and of medium height. Be careful of the elastic upper part of the sock; it must be relatively loose and comfortable. So far so good, this was a happy poem and I am departing with a smile! 7 G.
