You can stand under my

My life is full of Broken umbrellas

Valiant, they shield me from storms With Variable effectiveness

I replace them with near duplicates Little thanks given

You can see so clearly when one Is undone By the wind or In a recent case, a door

I could get something sturdier Heftier But it wouldn't fit into the Back compartment of my bag Wouldn't fit into the place where I Know I can find it In the rain

My life is full of Broken umbrellas And maybe that's bad for the planet but I have so many Other concerns Other breakings To mind

Thank you, umbrellas If nowhere else Then here
