2016 Nov PAD Chapbook Challenge Day 25 – ‘Tangling with Tape’

sellotape-meme

Yesterday’s prompt: ‘Write a tape poem. The poem could be about transparent tape, duct tape, video tape, or even tape worm. Anything that you can bend into a tape poem is fair game’.

Tangling with Tape

Oh I do get in a right tizzy
Wrapping my head round
That perplexing, vexing task
Of wrapping presents.
I find myself in a fight
With that roll of tape
Losing the elusive ‘end’
So many times until
I lose the will to live as well.
It becomes a blurred flurry
Of swearing and snipping
Leaving me blue-faced
And more tightly wound
Than the blasted tape itself.
I abandon the scissors
And in a senseless fit of rage
Find my savage beast within
And decide to bite down on it instead.
