I can't take my eyes off those silver boots

I went window shopping a couple of weeks ago, not planning on parting with any cash, but then, I saw these beauties.  Three thoughts flashed in a state of instant wild excitement: 1. Starman.  2. Noel Fielding.  3. Give them to me nowwwwww!  And then I thought of this - ENJOY!

I will wear them down the pub
I will shop in them at Sainsburys
I went to a book launch in them last week
I hoovered in them yesterday
I'll ride the Northern Line tomorrow
Keep crossing my legs for effect
and tread the escalator stainless steel
Absorbing the stares that follow
The kids shall feel exposed
when I wear them at the school gates 
and a gaggle of gossiping fishwives
bitching behind each other's backs
will stare at my feet and wonder
who the hell does she think she is?
and then go home and Google
Starman, Noel Fielding, must haves

anyone who rates 'Starman' (the film?)as their number one can wear hobnail boots with bells on as far as I'm concerned.Enjoyed this Anna.Thank you.Jemima.

Yes! - I felt the same when I first saw my doughnut shirt - although not the Starman and Noel Fielding thoughts.
