The Spare Toe

When Bob took off his sock one night,

the poor boy got an awful fright,

for there beside his great big toe

he saw another start to grow!

“Good grief!” he said, “This is all wrong.

A toe right there just won’t belong.

Ten toes, not more, is standard fare.

An extra toe will be a spare.”

He thought some more and did decide

that extra toe he’d not abide.

He did not want someone to stare

at his strange toe that was a spare.

He thought for days to form a scheme,

and then one night, while in a dream,

he realized what he must do

to keep that toe from public view.

Perhaps his plan he took too far!

Indeed some think Bob is bizarre,

for people always feel some shock

to see Bob swim still in one sock!
