Default Footprints (lighthearted fun)


FOOTPRINTS

Cats and dogs and ducks and birds
Pigs and hens and horses too
Sheep and foxes and goat herds
Men who wear a size ten shoe

Children playing out of doors
Policemen looking out for crime
Soldiers fighting in the wars
Office workers at lunchtime

Old men sitting on a bench
Postmen walking up the path
Foreign ladies speaking French
Muddy school kids in the bath

Gymnasts standing on their hands
Fishermen who get up early
Obese girls with tight waistbands
Ticket collectors looking surly

Ballet dancers on their toes
Mothers chatting at the gate
Nasty thieves who no-one knows
Prostitutes who stay up late

No matter if they walk or run
No matter if they come or go
No matter if they just have fun
They all leave footprints in the snow

You're right. That WAS fun.

Yes a fun poem - well drawn haracters and nicely done last stanza

No matter if they walk or run
No matter if they come or go
No matter if they just have fun
They all leave footprints in the snow - like this line

This is magnificent, and deserves illustrations, a binding, and a place on the library shelf. Off to the publisher with it!
