My Method For Tying Shoes - a poem

My Method For Tying Shoes
by
Greg Pincus

Keep your "Bunny Ears" and "loop-de-loops" -
I'll tie shoes with the method I've got.
Oh, sure, it's a mess
Yet there's often success...
So I call it the "Probably Knot."

It's Poetry Friday, and the roundup is at the fantabulous Teaching Authors site. Go on over and check it out!

Ha! I've seen shoes tied like that before. Nice ending :-)

I've been working in a primary classroom lately. This reminded me of their shoes, as 'probably' tied.

Just as long as you're not tongue tied.

Sometimes it's just easier with velcro, isn't it? =) Great poem!

If the knot fits, tie it!
