I went to the cobbler with one small request.
My shoes were quite good but I wanted the best.
I wanted some shoes that would make me run fast;
He measured my foot and then sculpted a last.

I went a week later and picked up my shoes.
He said they would get me on broadcasted news.
I put the shoes on and I ran in my race…
…So blindingly fast I fell flat on my face!
