How Do Socks Get Lost in the Wash?

How do socks get lost in the wash?
That's what I want to know.
How do they just vanish into thin air?
Where oh where do they go?

Is there a doorway behind the machine,
That leads to some place in the sky?
Or do they drop down, down below ground,
And why only odd socks, why?

It's like they just vanished from the face of the earth
Like, from life, they decide to refrain.
However there's one thing is always for sure
You won't get your socks back again!

The End
