The Umbrellla

The Umbrella

 

By Elton Camp



For a device that is so essential, it would be expected

That over the years it would’ve been finally perfected

But to get most umbrellas open often takes many tries

Punch the button as you will, but it doesn’t easily arise



And why do manufacturers produce umbrellas so small?

They keep rain off the top of your head, but that is all

When you finally get inside and into a place that’s dry

It seems not to want to stay closed no matter how you try



After only a few uses, there is little reason to have doubt

One or more sharp ribs will dangerously be sticking out

Although about the umbrella there is very much bad to say

You won’t fuss long because a wind gust will blow it away

Thanks. Over time I have tried to write on a very wide range of subjects from the trivial to the serious. Elton

I like this idea of taking an object such as an umbrella and expressing it in such a manner as you did. Very cool!
