Basket Case (Placed On Sears Clearance Racks)

Poem By Michael Fischer

I was a basket case
weaved out of broken threads.
I was marred by their hands,
placed on their clearance rack.
You picked up a defect;
So what did you expect? !

Throw me hard in the trash;
I'm of no use to you!
I can't hold your gift wrap;
I'm of no use to you!

I was a basket case
weaved out of broken threads.
I endured your steel wool
until I unraveled;
But your glue didn't mend
any of my loose ends!

Throw me hard in the trash;
I'm of no use to you!
I can't hold your gift wrap;
I'm of no use to you!

I'm what's left from my past!
I was too cheap to last!
