Get A Good Grip Of That dVerse Paper Clip!

 Have to wait and see who this could be!

It has been a while since the cat has gone the what to do mile. Though as all I had was a paper clip to amuse. I figured this I could easily use. So what to do has come back once more to my shack. I have to give some dVerse advice and it beats a tack.

What to do, What to do
When All You Have Is A Paperclip To Amuse You!


What to do?
You have become blue.
Boredom has set in.
How can you ever win?

Grab a paper clip.
Keep it away from your lip.
Could get a cut.
Stings like a scratch to the gut.

So move on we will.
Wouldn't want anyone to get a thrill.
Bend the thing and make a shape.
Round like a grape.

Stick up antlers like a moose.
Puckered like a caboose.
Make a chain,
Swing it to cause pain.

Just watch for their eye,
Or any spots that could make them die.
That would be a shame,
If you were to mame.

Pick the nearest lock.
Walk in and cause shock.
Catching them in the act.
You did? Is that a fact?

Or hone your skills.
And test your wills.
The wills of each hand,
There at your land.

Oh where that could go.
Keep your eyes from down below.
I meant make a hockey stick.
Then give a fake puck a kick.

One for each hand of course.
The losing hand gets no remorse.
Later he gets a thrill.
Create a paperclip mill.

Send then down the conveyor belt.
And begin to pelt.
The conveyor belt had a meltdown.
You can't help but throw them all over town.

Balance them on the floor.
Watch as one comes to explore.
Stab them right through their shoe.
A bit violent? I agree with you.

But that is what boredom does.
Makes you do things just because.
Luckily I have all of you.
And now with a paperclip you know what to do.

One little thing can set off a whole post. I am a rather crazy host. So I suppose that is easy enough to come due. I could go on about whatever comes into view. Like that wig lady over there. But would you really care? I mean what to do takes the cake. Maybe I should do one on an earthquake? Or on how to fish for bass. Then maybe I'll get a fishing show starring my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  2. It was a coca-cola bottle
    In 'The Gods Must be Crazy'
    Now one is going into battle
    With a 'Paper Clip' that's easy

    Such a little thing to bother
    It's actually a 'no fight'
    Just put it in the pocket brother!
    And ordinarily just take flight!

    Speaking of paper clips.... Don't ever suck one up in your vacum. You might end up tearing the whole thing apart to get it out.

  4. This is a paramount shining epistle
    Don't look at me I won't blow the whistle
    If a paperclip brings you hours of joy
    Praise to the heaven you found a new toy
    It's cheaper by far than the ones in Petsmart
    And you can't hurt yourself like you could with a dart
    Beware of the Feds if you live in a bubble
    I'm trying to warn you to stay outta trouble
    The project called Paperclip was secret by far
    We'll dance to the old tune of swinging on a star

    1. Hmpg blogger at my comment it seems
      Guess the programmers were out for ice creams
      Much is cheaper than petsmart
      And no matter if the toy can quack or fart
      The box is always more of a thrill
      To most kitties at any hill
      Great tune too

  31. yep, when boredom is to stay, what to do finds itself a way, no matter the object or the thought, an idea will surely be sought, have some paper clips right here, they've grown dust as I never use, so thanks to the cat, I'll put those dust bunnies away at last, now there is so much to do whenever a paperclip comes in view. And rhyme can make the most mundane object the center of attention. If only a paper clip could get rid of the snow and cold, now wouldn't that action be quite bold. Fun piece.
