Booted Out

 

You’ve walked past this place

so many times before

without the slightest inclination

to go in and explore.

 

It appears totally innocuous,

it doesn’t catch you eye;

but this here is the place where

the boots come when they die.

 

When those boots are worn right down,

when they are full of holes,

they can come and rest right here,

don’t need to have their soles.

 

When they’re scuffed so much they fall apart,

they don’t have any tread,

when they reach the time that they’re no use,

a time that they do dread

 

they’ll find a plot that’s waiting

just for their final rest,

along with all the roughest boots

as well as with the best.

 

If you look at that gate carefully

you might just lose your doubt

for there in tiny letters it says

just two words -- ‘Booted Out!’
