CUPBOARD LOVE

And they called it cupboard love
oh I guess they’ll never know
how stationery moves me
and why I love it so …

PAPER

Paper is the crisp, linen bedsheet,
awaiting your impression.
It is also good for writing, drawing
and other forms of expression.

Or if your love of origami
is extravagantly uncontrolled,
then the usefulness of paper
becomes manifestly manifold.

THE STAPLER

There is nothing better
than a stapler
for sticking together
sheets of papler.

THE PAPER CLIP

Some do not give a flip
about the humble paper clip
but to them I say – whatever.

For it is hard to think
of a more noble endeavour
than the compulsion
to holds things all together.

THE HOLE PUNCH

There is no bigger
perpetrator
of pierced paper
than the hole punch
perforator.

For lunch, the hole punch
eschews fresh spaghetti
but swallows holes whole
then turns it to confetti.

THE PEN

It has oft been said and oft been wrote,
the pen is mightier than the sword,
that much is true if, inside your pen,
a tiny nuclear bomb is stored.

Look after it and care for it;
please treat it with devotion.
For the loss of one mere biro lid
can lead to much pen-top emotion.

THE HIGHLIGHTER

If you are keen to highlight
your writing’s inner essence,
what you need
to best proceed
is a stick of pure fluorescence.

THE RINGBINDER

When it comes to getting organized
to help the seeker become the finder,
the ringbinder
plays a blinder.

THE POST-IT NOTE

Stick it on your colleague’s desk.
Stick it on their PC.
Stick it on your husband’s head
while he’s watching the TV.

All hail the post-it!
Together let us toast-it!
(but be sure to keep your message short
for only then can the post-it
host-it).
