Frances Can You Hear Us?


Sorry Frances, this is the best matchless sock pic I could find


Frances can you hear us?

Calling from your drawer

Alone and sad and saggy

We are your mateless four


Somewhere in your busy life

You've lost our other half

No longer can we sing and dance

No longer can we laugh


We know a dating service

Idea is fairly gone

Despite our don debating

The pros for it and cons


Frances, he wants to date us

Pair us with a mate

Charge us with an agents fee

And leave us to our fate


We've got a little favourite France

She's shear and saucy red

Imagine what would happen if

She ended up in bed!


Date her with a husky mate

I'm sure he'd make her bed

She'd come out like an utter wreck

All on her head, and shred


And what about the tumble dryer?

don's thought, (off his cuff)

Husky hunks all tumbling round

We could end up the muff


Hey come on sox don't knock me

With care I'd choose a date

Your saucy red I'd mate with Ted

A neutered perfect mate


Now tumbling round with other hunks

I've got this problem solved

We'd supply you nix with birth pills

Sorted, done, resolved


Now reader, France, stay with me

Your sox have caused all this

By calling for a dateship

Which seems they sorta miss


There's one solution to this France

It suits your sox, and all

Give your four to Goodwill

I'm sure they'll have a ball


(playing around with all their mateless chums)

Ray - I have always enjoyed intellectual interaction and unleashing my mind and letting it run free. It has not let me down here despite Frances sox not having a bar of my offer to help with their sorry situation (ungrateful sods, sorry sox).

It's this round the world adventure my mind travels in search of material and spill out willy-nilly in a fashion even I can't understand at times that surprises me. I treasure it, my mind that is, and will continue to instruct it to spill out willy-nilly-wise for everone's enjoyment. Including mine.

If you want to take a single sock
And let it find growing fire
Of passion after a fashion -
Give it a tumble in the dryer!

One thing I have never had the confidence or temerity to do is write a poem including my own name, Don. But hey I'm sure we'll never forget yours, mate.

Interesting how Frances's poem was a compression of a theme, while yours is a round the world symphony. over and out.
