Miz Quickly’s 29 July

Rubber Bands

I keep them in a plastic box, rubber bands
hold its lid on tight, rubber bands
keep coffee beans airtight, rubber bands
hold my cookbook together,

rubber bands to snap my wrist,
rubber bands so I don’t forget,

rubber bands
tied on tomato trusses, rubber bands
in all bright colours, rubber bands
that the postman drops,

rubber bands, rubber bands.
I do I do love a rubber band.

  1. They are so elusive around my house! When I do find one it has turned to crumbles. You remind me that I need to buy some. Who would think there could be an ode to rubber bands. Good job, Misk

  2. A useful tool, like twits ties from bread bags. Or paperclips 🙂
