Paperbag

I am a paper bag. I am only as good as what I can carry. I am a paper bag, I am. I’m not the smart one, I’m not the successful one I’m not the tall one who always won and  Then died.  I am a paper bag. I’m only as good as what I can carry. I am a paper bag,  I’m not plastic, not I. I am paper: rough, brown and thin I’m not waterproof, you know. And I can’t hold any liquids or gases within. I only have room for the stuff that matters. You know, I’m a paper bag. I’m only as good as what I can carry. I am a paper bag. Wrinkled and used and often abused Thrown on the floor. Buried deep inside your drawers. I am a paper bag.  I cannot ask for anything more. I’m only as good as what I can carry. https://tinyurl.com/y5c4pnet
