The Library

A Chapter by Dave Brown
"

👀

"

At the library

There is a book

For every consideration

And more than one

From every nation

Both murder mysteries

And recipe books

And books of hair styles

That may or may not

Improve your good looks

Books to make windmills

And video machines

Instructions on knitting

And putting holes in new jeans

How to fix car brakes

Or prepare macaroni

Most worth reading

Some just baloney

Books about space travel

About planets and stars

How to play pianos

Or repair old guitars

Books about pirates

And sharpening axes

But I can’t find even one

On avoiding my taxes

One of the highlights of my life was my 12th birthday when I was allowed by the local library to have my own library card. I've been a library rat ever since.
Nice poem. Maybe try a Capone biography. :)

Lol! I loved this poem, that little part at the end made me giggle :) I didn't know there was a book about putting holes in new pants I need to find that book! Thanks for sharing, Dave! This was an amusing little read :)

I am just guessing on that but I'll be surprised if there isn't.
Take care
