Sock Bugs

Illustration source: ClipartFest

When I woke up this morning
there was itching in my socks.
I was fine the night before
when I was playing with my blocks.

Something happened while I slept,
someone has moved in!
Little bugs are living where
once nothing there had been.

At first I was quite angry,
I was positively cross!
They didn't even ask before
deciding they were boss.

But then I noticed something
that I hadn't quite before.
The bugs were lovely company;
I laughed ‘til I was sore!

They offered me some cookies,
they offered me some tea.
My sock bugs were so courteous,
as friendly as can be.

I love my new friends oh so much,
I wish they'd stay forever,
but now my socks just smell so bad,
they’ve moved into Mom's sweater!
