The Fate of Books

The Fate of Books

Disused, degradingĀ in every nook,
O bitter truth, the fate of books!

But you could always

Rip Gardening Books into pieces small,
Compost with a rotting haul.
Use Teen Romance to mop up damp,
Home Improvement to prop a lamp.
Explosive Biographies make mighty fires,
Travel Books carpet mucky mires.
Manifestos suit origami tricks,
Self Build Guides make great bricks.
Fling Murder Mystery
With intent to maim.
Alternatively pick a page, insert in frame.
Or keep it simple, dust down and then
Open at the start and
Read again.
