 FOUR USES FOR A PIECE OF STRING

(WITH AN OPTIONAL BUTTON ATTACHED)

Mary’s #3

Forget the damned button.

They never stay attached.

All they do is work their way loose,

get lost under the dresser

or in the driveway or

someplace downtown, so

that you have to use string

to hold up your pants,

lace up your shirt,

close your coat,

fasten your sleeve.
