‘Twas a bright and sunny day

and I was walking down the street

when something caught my eye, said I:

“Just look at that man’s feet!”


The sky grew dark so quickly,

and I heard the thunder roll.

A tree crashed down upon the ground,

the wind blew icy cold.


I say I had to squint my eyes,

but it was all quite clear:

The man wore socks with sandals,

and the end was drawing near.


A giant earthquake shook the earth,

the people all despaired.

The man, he noticed not one bit,

or else, he didn’t care.


My heart, it raced in terror,

and I had to shield my face.

Why would a man do such a thing

to shame the human race?


Then he walked into a shoe store,

and he picked right out a shoe,

And he took his sock and sandal off.

I think the world knew,


for the icy wind stopped blowing,

and the rain it quickly stopped.

The earth ceased shaking violently,

and with a crackle pop,


the tree, it promptly stood straight up,

the sun shone once again.

The man quite liked his brand new shoes,

so the world didn’t end.
