ON THE DUPLICITY OF SHOES

Enclosed please find 2 Mephistos 

Swaddled by our men at Christo's,

Very much like getting Dristan

Packaged by Iseult and Tristan,

Or a waltz by Liszt, oh,

Acted out by Rocco Sisto:

Sprung from lowly racks at Von's

Then christened for a son of Mann's:

For such clogs, it's only fit

They come to mean their opposite

(The epitome of paradox is 

Spending life in a endless boxes)

Proving in the end that wrappings

Are nothing but the Devil's tappings.
