And Ever The Twain Shall Meet by 

Whilst looking for some slippers new,
Perusing L.L. Bean,
I came upon this dog-in-two ~
The best I’d ever seen!

I ordered them; when they showed up
I gazed at them with pain.
I felt so sorry for this pup ~
He had been cleft in twain!

And this dichotomy was cruel;
His prospects were most dim.
His personality was dual;
I had to conjoin him.

In my attempt to make him whole
I sewed my feet together;
Now I must hop, no more to stroll…
And thus concludes this blether.

Written by Sheila Vaughan for no apparent reason. Better than doggerel? You be the judge…………


shoes, slippers, dogs, poem, humor

A short bio, eh? I am Sheila, & I am short.

    Sorry – read the description AFTER I made my comment – lovely verse to go with this great capture, Sheila – lol xx

  • I slip my paws into these intriguing slippers on every occasion, though now the weather’s a bit warm for them. You might call my poem ‘doggerel’ if you were so inclined. I’d forgive you. Must be hopping now… but thanks!

    Hehe, made me smile, loved the prose …

  • Glad you liked it, mate. I took several pictures of my feet mit dawgs right after I got them, but never expected to post them here until the Perfect Challenge came along… & then I figured I’d dress them up with some verse. Could have been verse, but probably could’ve been better. Sorry. Thank you kindly, Tom.

  • True, true… but as my poem says, my feet are now sewn together & all I can do is hop. Sigh. Thanks, pal Joak.

    Wonderful doggerel, Sheila! I hope you wear a helmet while hopping. You know, I just purchased two llbean washable wool king-sized blankets for our wool/loving Lab, along with two washable woolen throws. I’m glad I didn’t see the dog split in two. I suggest you send them your persuasive, poignant poem.

  • Hey Jan! Thanks for the entertaining remarks & for the favorite!! I have all manner of protective gear, never fear. I think I got the last pair of these when I ordered them (at least the Last Pair in my size, & size choices were limited by then), though I suppose they may reappear when fall catalogs come into view. I may just take your advice & send my poem on to them………..
