A whole carton of straws
fell onto the kitchen floor today,
probably happy to be free
from that dark cabinet
and hoping to brighten somebody’s day.
That’s what straws do best, right?
You can use colorful straws to add
pizzazz to a drink,
blow bubbles in your milk,
launch spit balls across the room,
and slurp your way
to the bottom of a milkshake.
Use a straw
to add a bit of silly
to your day!
