I found a word I never spelled before
and never thought I’d wish to.

I feel I must be at least
partially insane.

I had some once upon a time
in those days I scarcely recall.

They were useful but cumbersome.

Now my dragnet for ancient matters
scans a word I can’t seem to forget.

GALOSHES! Did you ever own any?
Perhaps you have some now.
Somehow, I doubt it.
