Mounting Paper

Thumb tacks and sticky glue
Mashed potato hullabaloo
Nicknacks and discarded scraps
Newsprint, candy, canvas, zoo

Little Jackie Paper
A Puff of glitter later
It’s almost, almost done! We swear!
Just… a little… bit… straighter…

There!
Mom… it’s not a shoe or a snaffoo
Nor is it blue moon, or a broken kazoo
A mask or flask or some cookie cask
This or that for doing maths
Oh, it’s not for taking baths

Can’t you guess? No?
That’s ok,
I’ll mount it on the wall, anyway 🙂
