Watch out for the sock snatcher and hider.

One Sock Eater

by Verna Cole Mitchell

Your choice poetry! Contest Winner 
The One Sock Eater's here again
To gobble socks up where he can.

As silently as sleeping rocks,
He lurks among a pile of socks.

He pulls the sock he wants aside
And carries it away to hide.

He loves to choose one of a kind,
Then leave its matchless mate behind.

In washer, dryer, dresser drawer,
He's always searching for one more.

If sock is clean or sock is icky,
He doesn't care; he isn't picky.

He'll take one from a tennis shoe
And never leave a single clue,

Or find one underneath the bed
Beside some day-old crusty bread.

He doesn't even care a bit
If he has swiped your favorite.

No telling where he'll stash his prize;
He seeks a place from prying eyes.
