There once was a time I had faith in shoe sales I'd dutifully go to each one! Any store, any season, I'd be there for the deals 'Cause scoring a deal's so much fun! Here in New York it's called "Lucky Size"-- Where whatever they have's on display-- And I'd dig through the racks with a mission in mind; I could sort through those sale shoes all day! But as months turned to years I've come to conclude, After so many sales' hopes have been dashed, That "Lucky Size" isn't lucky for me. My size means "pay full price, in cash." Size seven and a half, it turns out is America's most common size--the "mode". And even if you're willing to wear a size eight It still doesn't lighten the load. No, Lucky Size is for sixes and tens (and for sizes above and below too). If you're a kid or a giant you really ARE lucky All the shoe sales are really for YOU! *If you have any question whether this poem reflects the reality of my situation, please check out Bluefly.
