Oh no! Today is that day we must fear
he has not changed his socks in a year
his feet were once pink
now it is the colour of stink
so do be careful and don't get so near!

Oh no! He is peeling them off very slow
releasing the rotten smell into the air flow
the stiffness is creaking
and the flakes are reeking
i reckon in the dark they would really glow

Oh no! They are free of his large fetid feet
and standing erect next to his bench seat
look! they are a-walking
soon they will be talking
the stench was putrid but somehow sweet

Oh no! My olfactory sensation is in despair
the malodorous began to foul the fresh air
dangerous choking gases
fogging up his glasses
before he begins to peel off a second pair!
