I lost my toe,  
the foot went grey.  
Where I used to know,  
A hole does stay.  

I found my egg,  
in a ditch was where.  
A root now my leg,  
the trench now a pair.  

I swapped my tree.  
And "oops" in the past,  
(Where could I be?)  
became "ouch" in contrast  

Where on earth am I?


What I lost sent me from high to something just below
What I found sent me falling even further though
What I swapped sent me going between high and low

Hint 2:

Adding the letter n somewhere on the first line would give you a massive clue.

Final Hint:

It's important that you change your tune or die a critic.
