On laundry days..

Sock Eater
by Betsy Rosenthal

On laundry days
my mother says
the dryer is a crook.

It’s all because
a sock is gone—
the one the dryer took.

I tell my mom she shouldn’t
let the dryer
see us eat.

It’s sure to munch a sock or two
because it craves a treat.

I dont like laundry days but when I saw this post.....and voila my laundry is done and my linnen cupboard looks devine..thank you dearest

What a cute little poem!

Btw, where do those socks go to?

Disappearing socks could be 'The Borrowers,' of course. :-)

What a great poem - we lost a sock just the other day but it was found safe and well down a shirt sleeve:) Every time I open my cupboard door to get out clean towels or sheets I think 'I must sort this out' but always I just close the door on it to be done another time:)
