Ode to My Books
(The Lament of the Librarian)
by Laura Hanna
New books came in today.
Bright, shiny covers,
Sharp, pointy corners,
The pages soooooo clean
No scribbles, stains, tears
And “unidentified“ substances.
Just creamy colored pages with beautiful words.
I want to save them from their fate!
Pages torn and folded,
Dusted with chocolate and crumbs
Why does it always have to be red?
Save them from the toddler’s bite
The dog drool and the gum!
From the overstuffed backpacks,
The rain and the mud
My wards go unprotected!
And a part of me cries
When one goes out the door…
