A pair of knitted socks, English

This is my entry in the challenge my wife issued. She takes suggestions on topics to write about, and then randomly pick one. This time, the topic turned out to be knitted socks. Here goes…

A thread, a yarn, a length of string
becomes a warm and fuzzy thing
over the toes, around the heel and up the leg
good thing this limb doesn’t end in a peg

My socks will live forever more
even if the feet smells like he’s been through  war
they will never make his little piggies sore
and when he goes on a date to score
the socks will bring luck and a girl to adore

Alas  this poem must soon end
but the socks will always against the cold defend
and when he buys another pair
we know it’s for his next sordid affair.
