Once there was a Converse shoe
And he was feeling rather blue,
For he had lost his true sole mate
In an unwanted twist of fate.
Left alone and in the dark,
Inside a car in a car park,
He wondered how and where and when
He'd ever see his twin again.
And then there came a hero tall,
To heed his silent distress call.
He plucked him from beneath the seat
Where once had nestled two small feet.
And then the shoe he gently bore
Inside the house through the front door
And placed him with the utmost care
Upon a little wooden chair.
The shoe was filled with great delight
When our hero said with all his might
That he was going to do whatever
It took to get them back together.
And so it was that the next day,
Both shoe and hero made their way,
A good deal faster than a snail
To the counter of the Royal Mail.
An envelope was purchased there
(A padded one, for extra care)
And little shoe was placed inside,
Ready for his postal ride.
Off he went with the other post,
A little scared but also most
Excited to be on his way
To see his sole mate the next day.
And so it was that the moment came
That will go down in the Halls of Fame.
Lefty and Righty once more did meet
To give support to those little feet.
