Poetry of slippers :

It was a small Black Bottom,
Who lived in a slipper
Both were pleased to see
Walking from morning until evening
The slipper around the Black Foot
And in the Black Foot slipper.
 
The slipper once said "Why
Drag the Black Foot with me?
Walk together what agony! "
It is heavy ... I am slightly
If he wanted to release the locations
Only I walk better.
 
Once the works slipper
To injure the feet, the pincer,
The tablet, made so many efforts
That the foot with a black horn
And suddenly taking fly
Retired from slipper.
 
The Black-footed, he fell
Of course in his little shoes
But he continued his route
And most certainly surprised
Was the slipper who did not understand, but given
Black Pied that without it no longer works.
