ode to a toe

ode to a toe

O little toes upon my feet

the pavement in my sneakers meet

pushed and shoved, a little squeezed

going further than ever believed.

toe number two on my right foot

your seeming lately a little off-put

some throbbing pain is settling in

i’m worried something’s going on with ‘im.

ive been warned that your nail just might turn black

then fall off, and start to grow back

a price to pay for the marathon,

i’m getting prepared for the day your gone.

1 -2- 3, counting up to 10

losing a toenail is a matter of when

til then, i’ll paint you and treat you well

cuz heck, runners think the loss is sexy as hell!  LOL

Ciao for now…..Diane
