The Magic Cobbler

The Magic Cobbler

I have traversed many lands
Learning a trade for my nimble hands
Some call me the magic cobbler
Others, the great shoe maker
I will frame the sole of your feet
Carve you a shoe that perfectly fit
Of the finest of rare leathers
With the colourful delight of assorted feathers
Let me see your stubborn sole
Tame it with a shoe that sings to the soul
Let my fingers sow and weave
Till it brings you soothing bliss.

Call my by the color of my skin
Black with a glowing sheen
I see your shoe lacks that touch
That of a master to make it gleam
I will make you a perfect shoebox
Of the finest of cedar and soft perfume
After a fancy catwalk
It will keep your shoes in its bloom
Call me the magic cobbler
Call me the great shoemaker
All i do is make shoes that brings smiles
And helps you sail easy through life.
