TIES THAT BIND
Your shoelace is undone, she said
which threw me quite off balance,
for such considerations run
outside my sphere of talents.
Such observations that ladies tell
will bring us down to earth
from higher realms wherein we dwell,
challenging our worth.
A shoe is just a metaphor
when in that state the ladies find us,
to rescue us from siren's muse
and use their wiles to bind us.
