Paperclips and Punishments

You punched a hole through my heart

Cut it to pieces along the dotted lines

Crumpled it into a neat white ball

Then tossed it in the wastebasket

2 points!

You can’t tape me back together again

Can’t staple the corners of our hearts

Together when the paper’s been torn

You can’t use whiteout over

Permanent Marker

How many times have I told you?

You can’t do math in pen;

It doesn’t erase,

And you might make a mistake.
