Underbred

Where have all the bread clips gone?
Long time passing
Where have all the bread clips gone?
Long time ago
Where have all the bread clips gone?
I have lost them every one
When will I ever learn?
When will I ever learn?
Where have all the twist ties gone?
Long time passing
Where have all the twist ties gone?
Long time ago
Where have all the twist ties gone?
Dusty ate them every one
When will I ever learn?
When will I ever learn?

Where have all the fresh loaves gone?
Long time passing
Where have all the fresh loaves gone?
Long time ago
Where have all the fresh loaves gone?
Gone stale early every one
When will I ever learn?
When will I ever learn?
(apologies to Pete Seeger)

  1. I know where they went. Katie collected the clips for a very long time when she was six or seven and turned them into colorful, yet interesting, neckaces and bracelets. We had to restrain her from removing them before the bread was put in the cabinet. Who knew she would end up pursuing a BFA and career as a costume designer?

  2. It was about the same time she learned how to solder and most of my metal washers and nuts disappeared... into necklaces, broaches and earrings.
