Identical

When asked to find his sneakers he said they didn’t match.

I told him yes they do, a fib you mustn’t hatch.

If you don’t want to play with Tommy just tell me, it’s okay,

We’ll find another friend with. whom you can play.

There are plenty who don’t bite you on the arm when not getting their own way.

He said I’ll look again in my closet as he ran and stumbled over every obstacle.

I shook my head thinking, How he doesn’t break his neck, it truly is a miracle.

Taking forever and a day I had to go retrieve him.

On the closet floor, buried under clothes of every article,

There he was grinning broadly as he looked up at me, holding both sneakers, identical!
