CCC98: Cobbler Bob

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #98

The old man ambled along the road
Gnarled as the oaks he was passing
A much-patched backpack hooked over his shoulders
Shoulders already askew from the hump of his back
He saw the shoe
Looked down at his feet
Oh, for a shoe equally as neat
A lady’s, no doubt
And well-heeled at that
He sighed and took it
He’d return it in the morning
Resoled and worthy.

    Should the lady return, she’ll have to leave the other one as they won’t have the same soles πŸ˜‰

  3. I love the way you’ve built up the character and an ending I wasn’t expecting.
