Enjoy Susie’s Trio for the week: 

Obloquy: public condemnation.

Myrmidon: Someone who unscrupulously follows someone more powerful. 

Naiad: a nymph of lakes, springs and rivers.

Gyles' poem this week is called 'Life Is Like A Pair Of New Shoes' by Cameron Delaney

Life's like a pair of new shoes

Their sparkling brand-new white hues

The stiff soles and laces

Tied up tightly like braces

That eventually wear down as you use

Life's like a pair of new shoes

They go in directions you choose

Down city street blocks

Wherever you walk

They stride along as you cruise

Lifes like a pair of new sneaks

When you first try to wear 'em they squeak

You run down the court

Of an athletic sport

And you show off your skilled techniques

Life's like a pair of new boots

Some fashionable leather beauts

You strut through the city

And you look real pretty

In your white collar buisness suits

Life's like a pair of new shoes

That wear out from years of good use

But soon they get old

And the insides have mold

And by the trashcan we say our "adieus"
