My Wellington Boots

My Wellington Boots

My Wellington Boots

are green and shiny

they’ve walked Cornwall’s lanes,

paddled in the briny;

protected my feet from

the rain and snow;

but, now, there’s a hole…

must they go?

I don’t want to get rid

of my Wellington Boots

I don’t want to trade them in;

I want to go back

to when they didn’t leak

but, now, when I put in

my two feet…

I get the dampest feeling

my toes become wet;

it’s quite uncom-for-ta-ble…

so, I guess, a new pair I’ll have to get.
