My shoes are dirty

(Dedicated to all those who made and lost fortunes in the stock market, this is not autobiographical its just something i thought of due to stock markets crashing and people losing money )

My shoes are dirty
I stepped into a small mud puddle
getting down from a public bus
The shoes are costly
costliest amongst fellow travellers
but then this is the cheap transport
they used to be shiny
they used to be soft
now they are weary
but what hurts most is they are dirty

My shoes are dirty
it seems to be so jarring
for they were not walked much
from carpets to luxury cars
they were well protected
but now since time goneby
they are in places they wouldnt have been bfore
they are dirty

my shoes are dirty!
it makes me feel very common
even more than being back on the chain gang
even more than being amongst the labourers
somehow the shoes say things that nothing else can
they show the hard life
they amplify what is wrong
somehow a persons shoes say it all
my shoes are dirty
they were once shiny
