Never Leave Your Socks Unattended

Dear all future and present socks:

I solemnly swear to do my darnedest
to finish your pair before starting another.
However, if there's no more yarn for you,
you can always be a monk or nun.
You choose.

I solemnly swear to to do my darnedest
to not gaze so heavily at the other sock skeins,
oh so juicy and appealing.
Don't forget the endurance that takes,
for pete's sake.
(p.s- I get a couple of freebie glances, but that's it.)
My love is pure and faithful.

I solemnly swear to do my darnedest
to never have more than one socks on the dpns
unless it's your other half, your soul-mate.
I'll tell it like a lover.

However, the exceptions are
Christmas, (other High Holy days) & Birthdays...
when it's not just about you.
There are just too many feet to serve at once.
You must not get envious.
Be patient, you'll have your hours of glory
in a few weeks.

I solemnly swear to try my darnedest
to dye you beautifully, if bought in white,
so you can shine magnificently
for years to come.

I solemnly swear to try my darnedest
that some of you will be laced and cabled-up,
not just plain-jane style.

I solemnly swear to try my darnedest
to never wear a hole in you,
even though I'll wear you
over and over again.

Thus said, I'll do my darnedest for you all.
I'll never leave you unattended.
(but only relating to socks.
Sorry, I'm just not that good.)

Your loving creator,

That was cute. I love the socks. They look very soft and cushy.
