The Argyle Sock

Off the bridge it goes into cold water
Carried down the angry river which raged away 
One argyle sock looks like the other
Separated from the mate by accident
Despair turned into a missing pair 
No more washer dryer cycles of life
Agitation tumbles forth
Takes a turn for the worst 
Spills into ocean waves to foreign lands
Where a large bass or whale would swallow it
A fate that made no matter to the sock
It ended up in China in a fishing net
Where every part of a fish is eaten
Anything that moves is food
A mother put the sock before her son
In a soup it looks delicious
When the boy took a bite he cried
This tastes disgusting! It is too tough!
He tried some salt and pepper as dad suggested
Mom screamed, put a sock in it and eat it!
People are starving in countries other than our own

Hi Cheryl, Thank you so much. Glad you enjoyed it. I have to go through hopping around on one leg because I always lose one sock in the washer....or dryer? Mystery solved! China! Thanks again. Earl
