Holes in Socks

Holes in socks are fine.
I never pay no mind
To holes in socks.
They’re fine.
Sure you get some rocks
(More of a shoe problem.)
A toe might escape.
You live with that risk
(Or fix it with some tape.)
They’re windows for the toes,
Serve as nice vents,
And are the finest factories of lint.

Holes in socks are fine.
Both socks and holes are mine.
The only problem you might mind
If you wear them all the time –
One day, out you’ll stroll
And find that they’re all hole.

(Though I also think that’s fine.)
