Lying on the Beach

Two pair of shoes lie on the beach by the pier, Both sandy too and much worse off for wear. A pair of whoppers faintly reach my ear, Both taller than the last one told I swear! Two pair of shoes lie, on the beach by the pier! 7/31/2017 Sicilian Quintain 5th Place Two Pair of Shoes Contest Sponsor: John Lawless

Skillful humor this Quintain (Sicilian) poem be, Dean. It has such keen, witty depth. Very perceptive write. Can anyone help me out: what is the French word for a dual meaning ... double en ... something. Appreciate if anyone know that word. Cool poem, it made me smile. Love and peace.

Thanks again Heidi. This one is a little strange given the theme of the contest but that is what came to mind so I went with it. I had fun, that's what counts. - Dean
