Silver Jubilee

Socks are for keeping your toes warm.
They grow friendlier with faithful use.
Stretchable and sure,
They'll rightly endure
Damp feet and mouldering shoes.


I know every stitch on the inside and out,
Each prudently patched up tear.
Like my tenth layer of skin,
It's been wearing thin,
And you're still not my favourite pair.

Firstly, I love the flow of rhyme. Secondly, I must discuss this with you.

@ Diwakar:
Thankyoo yet again.

@ Anushka:
Whenever I hear that a lecture inevitably follows.
I should've mentioned that this is just my take on it. Couldn't presume to generalise now could we?

Anushka said...

Oh no, no lecture! I just think the wording leaves it very open to interpretation. Was merely wondering how close my take is to your original thought.
