FANCY FOOT FACTORY

I've pushed and shoved my way 
to the front of the field trip line
for I desperately desire to go 
to the Fancy Foot Factory!

I have dreamed about this day for
like forever, so desirous am I to
trade in these freakishly funny looking feet
for smooth, svelte, sophisticated
small and oh so dainty feet
with the most admirable, manicured
toenails on the planet.

From the first moment I became
aware of my frightfully large 
phalanges (I even recall playing
with my long toes as a kid)
and comparing them with other
normal kid's feet, I felt like
a female hobbit (fortunately, my
feet aren't hairy!)

They say the Fancy Foot Factory will guarantee
their foot replacement work, so I can feel
fancy and fashionable 
for the right fee, of course!

One question, though. Do they come 
with a lifetime supply of stylish sandals?

Think they have a less hairy back factory? Mine looks like a wheat field in an oil slick. Fun write Laura...

This poem embodies the kaleidoscope of colors and a fountain of sparkling phases that paint and create magic upon the page. It tantalizes us with succulent imagery to seduce us with the nectar of poetic creativity. Well done. Emile. #7
