BUBBLE GUM

Folder: 
SLEEPY TIME POEMS

 

I never chew

the bubble gum

that

 

comes in

a pack

of baseball cards

 

I just give

the stick of gum

to my brother

 

or one

of my sisters

 

Iā€™m just interested

in the cards themselves

My mother forbade us from chewing bubble gum.

In order to collect the cards, we had to throw the gum in the trash.

I didn't have that

I didn't have that restriction but I usually didn't care about the gum.  I was hoping to procure a Mike Schmidt or a Steve Carlton or some other legendary player.
