I was at the CNN Center in Atlanta and a young man came over and said he was from CNN, and asked about what shoes said about the person. I assumed that it was a prank, and maybe it was not. But afterwards I wrote this piece.

I did tell him I wanted to wish America a 236th Happy Birthday.

CNN Center Character Shoes


Hear the CNN Center floor tell its story

That what one wears on their feet

Represents the type of person they are.


Here the tap tap of high heels clicking

With a silken dress of shimmering beauty

Upon shoes with feminine high fashion.


Click clop of flip flop flat sandals

Slap at the CNN tile floor,

While being strapped

To the feet of a casual owner.


Those loafers wear T-shirts

Pulled snug, where they hug at the feet

Where those blue jeans just shuffle along.


Those spiffy new Reebok and Nike’s

Wanting to be an sport star athlete.

Those Franklin squeak sneakers of high cost,

That prancing strut of American dreams.


CNN floors, feel that stiletto heel pressure,

In those crystal-covered elevator shoes,

Christian Louboutin fashion with 7” heels.


Or wear cowboy boots that spur on CNN

Where they have to take off that layer of BS

Then write about the bare naked - foot facts.
