I bought a pair of red shoes,

they’re the talk of the town.

Some say I look like a celebrity,

other’s call me a circus clown.

Down the city sidewalk I strut,

a taxi cab stops in the street.

Someone yells “there’s Travolta,

walking to that Bee Gees beat.”

My shoes have a shiny glow,

I make sure they’re polished.

Their reflection lights the block,

so, my neighbors want them abolished.

How comes Dorothy gets to wear,

ruby slippers in the land of Oz?

While people attack my red shoes,

without an ounce of just cause?

In the end, I gave my shoes away,

to an old friend whose hair is red.

When he wears his red leisure suit,

he’s the same color from toe to head.

    I’m now not sure the place you are getting your info, however good topic. I must spend some time learning more or understanding more. Thank you for great info I was searching for this info for my mission.


    1. Alex:

      The information I use in my poems comes from my observations and experiences. In this poem, I used examples from the music and motion picture industry, such as Dorothy’s shoes. The Bee Gees wrote the theme song to Saturday Night Fever, which Travolta stepped to.

      Thanks for visiting my blog!
