Clown Shoes

on February 7, 2015

These clown shoes

 keep tripping me

Can I take them off now?

I can’t stand to be

 so clumsy

These clown shoes

keep tripping


Let me take them


I’m sick of

being your


I’m sick of

these shoes

too big for me to

ever fill

Let me take them


I can’t


tripping like
