These Old Shoes

IMG_2317

 Chef shoes

 Little umbrellas for feet

Stronger than plastic wrap

Tougher than burlap.

Made for the kitchen, no good for sitting

Run a mile round and round,

 In the cooler, climb up, then down.

Spray them with Armor All

Protects like a coverall

More lustrous than a Cadillac

Or truffle duck fat fries

For a Scooby snack.

Skechers, clogs, Birkenstocks

 find a shoe that fits your price

 Rubber molds for your feet

 Cushioned insoles to absorb the heat

A pit bull’s grip – they never slip

Like a feather in Hercules’ grip.

We love these shoes, but cannot lie:

A barefoot chef is happiest.
