My Feet Go to Eleven

Never buy shoes in a hurry.
It's better to wait, I'll report:
Never expect that your purchase, if hasty,
Won't be too tottering, too tight or too short.

Rushed on your way to an elsewhere
Should never be the circumstance to meet
Your steps to the world, your platforms of peace
The support and showcase for your feet.

Instead, take your time and go browsing,
Considering what you like best.
And if you are moved to an impulse
Step forward; History tells the rest.

I bought my shoes in a hurry.
They're handsome and pretty - heaven!
But in pain by day's end, Honesty insists
They be given to an actual size ten.
