Munday on Monday: A single thread

Updated: 2013-06-19T22:39:30Z

A single thread

A single thread was all I pulled,

A single thread — just one —

Which dangled from a garment new

But look what’s now begun…

Another thread soon followed suit

With others (you might guess)

And suddenly, the sleeve devolved:

A rattered, tattered mess.

Don’t pluck, don’t pull, don’t tug or yank

No matter it may tempt;

Lest you endure a fate as mine

And look unkempt, not kempt.
