Paper Plane
a i r l i n e s
All seems ready
But I have a problem though
A hundred paper planes
all set . . . but lo!
I still am not able to go
All thier folded glory
Calmly rested on the table
Aerodynamic as they are
They’re functionally Unable
To carry ME,
The single most
important passenger,
The Paper Plane Maker
E x t r a o r d i n a i re
( Who happens to do stupid
things With a flair. )
Thats a hundred paper planes
And I’ll be making
a hundred more And more,
and more, and more . . .
=Springkle wastes a day making 100 of these.
