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.
