dear ms b-dont do it


now ms b
as i watched on tv
i thought to myself
i sure hope she doesnt do this

while you were visiting us
i noticed that
you have cute little feet

slide easily into your mud boots that you splashed in the river in
slide easily into your new red cowgirl boots that you wore
to ride the horse

of course
your favorite way to go
is commando
dont ask what that means
you dont like socks on or shoes on

the first chance you get
off they go
wiggling your toes back and forth
pitter pattering across the floor

i think theres a genetic cause for this
its your arkansas gene you got from your granddaddy

we always went barefooted when i was a kid

now that may have been to save our good shoes from wear
probably was the reason
i think theres this enjoyment of wiggling your toes in
the sand
in mud
its a primal thing i think

now i like to watch the voice
i am amassed at the talented young folks
that are on the show
how can they be that good so young

now some of the girls it seems
especially those on blakes team
they are cowgirls
they wear cowgirl boots
lucky them

the others seem to wear these high high heels
these things seem unsteady
that if you just gently push them im sure the girls
would fall over

so they start young wearing these shoes
these high heels im sure only a man would design

if they do this for a lifetime
they are dooming their feet
ingrown toenails as all the toes get all squished inside
those pointed toes
shortened achilles tendons that doom them to knee and ankle
and foot problems as they age
knee cap problems which already is a common malady
in young growing teenage females
eventual back and hip and knee arthritis

if they are obese these girls the doom is even worse

i can only imagine what must happen to the ball of the feet
as you stand in those shoes putting pressure
all the pressure on that area

so i guess ms b
just because everyone else does it
doesnt mean you have to

save your feet
follow your own trail
wear flats
you know they make dress ones
wear those cowgirl shoes
wear those sneakers
whenever you can
pop off those shoes
then you are back to your roots
