Flip Flops

Living on an island 
You think you would own a pair 
of flip-flops for every wear. 

I have seen flip flops so worn down 
That toes were touching the ground. 

I have seen other flip flops so torn 
That you swore they were over worn. 

I have tried to wear a pair of my own flip-flops 
But I felt so unprepared. 

My first pair made my toes so sore that I swear. 
Flip-flops have made me slip and trip. 
That is why I don't wear 
Nor care or dare 
To wear flip flops anywhere!
