My Big Toe

by Barb Hensongispsaca

Oh, you majestic toe - you rock!
You stand so proud and tall.
Responsible for my balance,
you're my protective wall.

You're the biggest of all my toes;
you bend to help me stand.
I don't mind giving extra care,
you fulfill my demands.

The pain you bring when stubbing you
is shadowed by your grace.
The times you broke, you still were poised
as I fell on my face.

So I could never do without
your style and bunions, too.
You always go where e'er I go,
you stick to me like glue.

You come within a set of ten
and always stand so tall.
And when you help me dance around
we really have a ball.

You have a very special twin,
you look alike, you know.
Without you, I would have just nine.
You are a special toe.
