Regurgitating Monster

“What’s happened to my socks?” he said,
his face flushed red.
“There’s not a match
in this whole batch.
All five of them have lost a mate!”
“A monster ate
them–I can tell–
phew! what a smell!”
He pitched them back into the tub,
turned knob to scrub.
He dried them, then
and found all ten.

    Funny one this time and I think the comment Gene made “If you were a one legged soldier” says it all. 🙂

    Cute! I remember my dad saying if he ever caught that one-legged man who had been stealing his socks, he was going to get him!


    • It is definitely a mystery. Once, when Gene was complaining about the missing socks, I said, “Well, you have enough socks for an army.” And he replied, “If they were all one-legged soldiers!” 🙂
