Life of old threads in a Jacquard- Infinite Infinitian Contest

Jails we weave in hues of red rust
All our yarns are strong and just 
Croons of threads sing on a
Quilt, "A song of trust!"
Urged the wefts,'we
Are like Silk,
Roped for
dust!


8th October 2015

Jacquard: a fabric made on a loom fitted with a jacquard, with an intricate variegated pattern
Weft: In weaving, the weft is the term for the thread or yarn which is drawn through the warp yarns to create cloth. Warp is the lengthwise or longitudinal thread in a roll, while weft is the transverse thread.

i loved this one from the first time i read it; it's very original, with terrific rhythm and rhyme considering the form, truly reads like a little song or jingle, and the last four lines are particularly good - congrats on your 1st place in my contest!
