Since the picture of a shoe fits in the composition where an ear would be, one should wonder, given our inability to turn off our ears, how leather ear-shoes would help nuns and priests retain their honesty. Politicians here have feedbags like carriage horses in the park. They also sport blinders and leather ear-shoes. Poets and social critics are made of pencils glued onto wine bottles. Their noses, now, are erasers, so as they intrude they clean up their presumptions.
