Bad Poetry: I Woke Up With One Sock – A Valentine’s Ode To A Bear

In our Bad Poetry Series we are allowed to write bad poetry and publish it on the site because that’s what we feel like doing. Long ago my bad writing was only seen by my parents. Now, through the power of the internet I can maybe trick unsuspecting folks such as yourself into reading it as well! Yassssss!!!

So this Valentine’s morning I woke up sans one of my socks. It got me thinking….

I Woke Up With One Sock – A Valentine’s Ode To My Bear


I woke up with one sock this morning,

Much to my cats delight,

I wonder what could have caused it,

As I simply slept at night.


Did one decide it was fed up,

and pack and grab its bag?

Or was it old beyond its years,

and droop off due to sag?


Did I mismatch and then pair,

mortal enemies who fought?

Or did one finally up and leave,

to visit that timeshare it bought?


I woke up with one sock this morning,

my cold toes confirmed was true,

I will count my blessings though,

because I woke up next to you!




May you never ever wake up with one sock, and if you do may your foot be warmed by your loved one or thoughts thereof!


Is the sock living it up without me? I may never find out!
Is the sock living it up without me? I may never find out!

    I go to bed with cold feet and wake up sockless. I manage to ball my socks off my feet with one foot. So there are a bunch of socks paired around the bed.

        Get Bombas. I’m wearing mine today, and they haven’t fallen down! It’s basically a miracle. I’ll have to try their no show socks next. I have biiiig issues with those from other brands and last night took my socks off in the store because I had to pull them up three times!

    **finger snaps** This made me laugh and it was well written!

    I used to write moody teen angst poetry in gel pens in my black paper spiral notebook with flames on the cover. I should literally put flames on it if I ever find it…
