The paper bag

Sad, sad little paper bag
No one brought you to school
Nobody listened to the crinkle
Of a sandwich being lifted out of you 
Folded up and left in the junk drawer 
All hope was lost, deflated and defeated 
Until, one day, some little hands
Drew your eyes with black marker
On your bottom, and made you anew 
Little green scales, some red and yellow
Hooray, the day has come! All hail!
The dragon that guards the tea party!

    I agree with Josie! Impressive how on the topic of an inanimate object - so seemingly insignificant - you've created a an interesting story. That's talent <3

    Oh Jeremy - you have the rare gift of seeing a poem in the smallest and neglected subject of them all - - - a sad little paper bag. Well done I say!!! Keep writing.
