“The New Shoes”…a poem based on fallacy

Day 6 poetry prompt: Fallacy:

“Unsound arguments. Failures of reason…make poetry from known philosophical fallacies.”

This was a very interesting prompt. It made me think and I did have a few chuckles to myself as I considered which path to take…but then, I stopped “over-thinking” and gave it a go. 🙂



“The New Shoes”

I just had to buy these new shoes today:

because this morning’s coffee was decaf.

They were red, strappy and all kinds of naughty:

as I liked the giraffe.

I know I have three similar pairs

but I hate odd numbers you see.

I really wanted that shot of espresso

and now my sister’s been stung by a bee!

Hope you enjoyed it! ❤ CN
