EZ Way

By Joan McNerney

My mind shapes my mind
I'm thinking I found the EZ way
to tie your shoes.
All those grownups
making big holes out
of string and somehow
loop them in.
Pretty bow but too hard.


Don’t like shoe strings
until the EZ Way…
make a knot to tie it up first!
You don’t need your
little finger to make
knot. Tie it up.
Then you can make
pretty bow on top.
No loose strings.
