Ode to Paper Clips - Addendum

Paper clips, O’ Paper Clips
You bring my thoughts together.
Delicate as you appear to be,
You withstand most any weather.

Even when discarded
To lie upon the street,
Your strength withstands the cruelties
Of auto tires and feet.

Lying left upon the filthy street
In warm or stormy weather,
Your understanding of the human race
Grows daily ever better.

Your sense of order gives the cry
For more organization
Than there appears to be right now
In the world and in this nation.

Things seem to be becoming worse
Instead of getting better.
But Paper Clips, dear Paper Clips,
You bring my thoughts together.
