I have just recently got some *new* rubber boots!! I got a pair of black polka dot rubber boots for Christmas, and after 7 months they have bit the dust. They were too small and the right boot had a big rip in the heel. :) (Having a rip in your boot when you go fishing isn't very pleasant, especially when you get pond water in it and then feel a little critter biting you on the foot.) So, it was time for some new ones. I got some pictures of the old and new, and my friend Allix wrote me a poem to go with them.
These are my old ones, can you tell they've been worn twice every day if not more??
The troublesome hole. :(
Rubber Boots: Old and New
Trudging out to see my goats
In the mud and morning dew
Sporting my good ole’ rubber boots
Just like I always do
I wear the black old things each day
And I hardly noticed at all
My boots with polka dots a plenty
Had gotten rather small
To top it off, in fact, it’s true
Besides their growing lack in size
Great big holes proved to be
My dear old boots demise
Though it was hard to face the truth
We headed to the store
The only thing that could be done
Was for me to find some more
As I was looking there on the shelf
I saw before my eyes
The cutest, shiniest boots of yellow
And guess what; they were my size!
So now as I go plunging through
The grass and mud and grime
No more dotted holey boots
Just nice, new, shiny ones this time!
