I’m nuttin’

but a simple button.

battling the blues.

Holding fast

amid adversity

standing against stress and strain

I see you stare

I do not care.

While ripping seams are heard in dreams

accompanied by delirious screams

I’m a button with a function–

Keeping everything together

against the odds,

without applause.

For Sam, I can!

Because, madame

I do my button best

clinging lest things explode

against his chest.




Dedicated to the button straining on that blue shirt.  It has a Twitter account.  Seriously.
