Odd Sock Hero


Odd Sock Hero



A giant of a gentleman,
perhaps a fabled explorer....
Come to greet an old friend,
share a special new treasure.
Expose a truth of discovery,
or court a beneficiary source.

Tweed jacket and wide brimmed hat,
a give away to his class.
Some professional in his field,
a professor of archaeology perhaps.
Groomed and well mannered style,
an air of real confidence too.

But as I scan the man,
I find an odd aspect of attire.
His feet are sporting brogues,
yet his socks are clearly odd.
Both of colourful patterned style,
still they clearly stand out a mile.....
