Who?


What do you do

When your heel is broken

Or your strap is off

And your sole is gone

A busy day ahead

An important meeting to attend

A mountain load of work

What do you do?


Whom do you beg

At these times of despair

For a few seconds of theirs

Beg for an act of finesse

Such finesse, they say

Or an expert opinion

At this eleventh hour

Whom do you beg?


Who has with him

Tools of every kind

Unimaginable, inexplicable

Incomprehensible and sacred

And it’s owner, worshippable

You might even want to

In his honor, build a temple

Who may He be?


Who may he be

But a lowly cobbler

Whom when you cross on the road

You carefully step aside

Barely acknowledge him

Though helped you he has

In many an hour of need

FOR WHO SAYS HELLO TO A COBBLER?

who strikes ur mind
at this very moment
for a li'l bit of help
Someone who's always at ur doorstep
with a smilin 'hi'
who's this?

who's this
who accidentally
went thru ur blog
even though
u never bothered
to know about the whereabouts
