An ode to my beautiful clean trainers

An ode to my beautiful clean trainers ... now no quite so beautiful and clean.

My new trainers were sparkly and white
They gleamed like a beacon at night
But I stepped in goose poo
Now they’re covered in goo
And the gleam is all covered in shite.

Can you tell I’m a bit peeved that my previously white and beautiful trainers are now a not-quite-so-fetching brown colour? Flippin’ incontinent geese.


  1. however I have two pairs of clean bright shinny trainers :)

    1. Show off!! You need to go out on one of my nice muddy runs!! That’ll show ‘em! ... Make sure you avoid the goose goo and dog eggs though ...

  2. Your shiny white shoes are no more
    Now covered in stinky old gore
    From a poor tiny goose
    (though thank god not a moose)
    Or their smell would make noses quite sore.

    Or something.

  3. Love this! LOVE it! :) I bow down to your superior limericking. P.S. you want a guest limericker spot?
