The Raven

Avatar Author: AdorableBlanket ain't got much to say just passin the time in a way i enjoy Read Bio

Once, I wandered, weak and weary, through my laundry, stained and dreary
Searching for my quaint and curious purple socks of yore
There I came upon a t-shirt
Upon which, was a silkscreen of Dilbert
I looked upon it with disgust, and threw it on the floor.
This I did, and so much more.

Deeper still, inside the laundry, I had gotten lost, and, hungry
So I devoured a fungus found upon my bedroom floor
“Tis disgusting,” I said and shuddered, “This fungus found upon my bedroom floor.”

I distinctly remember wearing them last December
They warmed my toes, and when I was done I cast them upon the floor
Now they’re gone, gone forevermore.

“Purple Socks!” I cried so they could hear me
“Come back to me!” I did decree
“Come warm my frozen feet forevermore!”

And then, I saw them, softly glowing
Laying on the floor, unknowing
Unknowing how I sought them on the floor

And now my socks have reunited with my feet, who are delighted!
I’ve reunited with my purple socks that I thought lost forevermore!
Wait these are blue
