haiku story

This is going to be a haiku story. Only one post per person in a row. This can go any way (keep is family oriented, though).

here's to start you off.

I don't like to run
but I can't afford a car
walking doesn't work

So I hop instead
It's like hopscotch all the time
But without the chalk

One day while hopping
I saw a small man mopping
I hopped up to him

And he said to me
"What a bizarre man you are,
Hopping all about"

He replied "Kind sir,
I was cursed to mop all day,
By a wicked witch."

“From the south,” he sighed,
“But, hopping sir, you can help
Lift this mopping curse.”

"This curse you speak of,
Could it be due to your shoes?
They are mismatched, sir."

The small man looked shocked
“Of course! Why didn’t I see?
Help me find new shoes!”

"You are in luck, sir!

What size are your feet?"

"My feet, sir, are small
But they are mighty in width
Size four, extra wide."
