Walk In My Shoes

Take a walk in my shoes; just a little test-drive
try them on for size, if you may;
see if they fit, then take a few steps
in these worn-out generic brand shoes,
or run a mile or two if you’re serious;
you’ll get a taste of how the other side lives,
and if it’s not too bitter, maybe you can swallow
my footprints without choking.
