Ode to a flip flop

Walking through the beach
That’s all it took
One glance at flip flops in the sand
And I knew
I want to be comfy
I want to be helpful
Covered in design
I never looked so wonderful
Let me be rubber
And I pinky swear
I will protect your feet
Yes, I will risk smelly feet
Water seeping through me
While I still remain in
Perfect condition
No water damage
More scuffed then broke
Forget the dirtiness on your feet
I’ll close my eyes at the count of three
And you can transform me into
A flip flop
Go on I’m half flip flop
