"in all probability, the foot is to be taken as an ambivalent symbol. For Jung, it is what confirms Man's direct relationship with the reality of the earth, and he considers that it is frequently phallic in significance. Ania Teilhard points out that, like the hand, it is an essential part of the body and the support of one's entire person...."

foot

so down-at-heel and stood upon

misunderstood for all these years

it's no small feat

to bear my weight

 

how could I be so callous to ignore

your handiness

no wonder you get sore

 

must hop to a chiropodist at once

no pussyfooting

I need pedicure

 

for I know it may sound corny but

I wouldn't be the same without you foot

 

and what would shoe-manufacturers do

without you

 

without you

I couldn't make a pun about the sole

 

swaddled in my holey cotton socks

kept apart from Mother Earth

almost since you learnt to toddle

rubber's a poor substitute

for naked touch of skin and morning dew

 

if I were in your shoes

I'd kick them off

and have a ball

 

you deserve a long hot bath to soak in

a foot massage

or is that masturbation phallic foot

It took me a while to find my feet. I thought they were in my shoes, but they'd gone for a walk, sockless & free like some latterday Sandy Shaw...
