Shoe In, Shoe Out

by Mae Scanlan

When the POTUS and the FLOTUS
Left for Texas (per appeals),
We just couldn’t help but notice
That the FLOTUS wore high heels,

Black stilettos, raising eyebrows
As she sauntered to the plane;
Both the lowbrows and the highbrows
Had to think this was insane.

She wore sneakers when she landed
(There’s a flood. The lady’s hip.)
But one question (let’s be candid):
Fashion footwear for the trip?
