4 - Odds and Ends

Each sock has a partner

Somewhere in the universe

But it’s never in the same draw as its mate

And what is worse,

The only socks that I can find

Are of a different colour.

Some are bright and patterned,

Others plain and duller.

What can you do with thirty-two

Odd socks and not one pair?

Do you think I could match mine

With somebody out there?
Let’s all get together

And see if we can find

That if we all compare our socks

We’ll have two of a kind.
