The fattest day you ever had,
The boss who always gets you mad,
The fight you know you’re going to lose,
The times your man play fast and loose,
The times you think “Oh, what’s the use?”,
The times your ego needs a boost:
All seem less daunting in good shoes.
Alessi, Ecco, Hotter, Klein,
Prada and Converse, and divine
Louboutin pumps and Jimmy Choos –
The mantras promising success,
The kisses making all pain less,
The power and glory we invest
In perfect, shining, stunning shoes.
