I walked in the rain

and my feet got wet

so I took off my shoes & socks

before my usual stretch

on my beloved recliner.


I began to scrutinize my toes

and tried to think of

when I learned that

toe nails grow more slowly

than finger nails.


Then I thought that maybe

this was an evolutionary thing

and that at one time

when man went barefoot all the time

his toe nails kept up

with his finger nails.



my feet look pretty good

and I am glad

I’ve not had to replace them

even though these days

replacements are pretty good.
