Boy with Elastic

Elastic Bands
By Linda A. Copp

He toyed with an elastic band
made it stretch, and bend,
Until it flew the borders formed,
escaped and tried again.

But, even such a rubber life
must certainly grow tired
And then the silly formless band
finds it's lost, and has not inspired.

For it was just amusement's knock,
a piece of childish joy.
Just a bit too flexible
to ever keep the boy.

And so, as time wore out its life
the elastic soon to find
That bands will always break when stretched
beyond a state of mind.
