Today I'm linked with Kerry O'Connor  in the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads (link) where her theme is "Get Listed! ~ The Compound Word Edition' meaning we are to use three (3) compound words from a huge list.  I chose four (4) from including one extra for the title from "List 10" of 15 lists.  My choice is Salesclerk, Sharecropper, Showoff, and Sheepskin.  This is a busy day so I wrote a three-line Senryū with a lagniappe title, many Senryū aren't titled.

The photo is from the 2012 Paris ( France) Marathon.  Our daughter, Karen ran it and Mrs. Jim and I had come to cheer her on.  The people wearing a mask were making a statement about Global Pollution.  I do not know who the lady in blue is, she was not with the demonstrating group.

I had to look up 'sharecropping' (sometimes we only think we speak the same language) but I thought this was very neat anyway.

I think sore footed is probably a spot on decription for a sales clerk.
