Amusing poem about the clutter in my basement.

There’s clutter in the basement.

There are boxes everywhere.

I’ve even found a basket

Of my father’s underwear.

And look, I’ve found some candy.

They look like a tasty treat.

But they are ten years old,

And not suitable to eat.

Now I’ve found a calendar.

It says  2001.

And here’s an old video.

It’s called “Buns on the Run.”

I located a flag.

It looks all tattered and worn.

Here’s another video.

It’s called “Swept Away by the Storm.”

Say I’ve just found a map.

I’ve also found a cloak.

All of a sudden, I’m invisible.

This must be a joke.

My basement feels damp.

It’s not very appealing.

Looking up at the tiles.

I see a leaky ceiling.

I think I’ve seen enough.

I’m calling it a day.

Oh look, I’ve discovered,

A picture of Aunt May.

I’m getting a strange tingling.

It’s time for me to leave.

Otherwise this web I’m spinning

Will be difficult to conceive.

    Haha very entertaining! So much old memories worth to be treasured from what we thought were junks.

    Haha, I see the Harry Potter reference there. XD It’s so cute and childlike! :D I’ve love to make an illustration out of this. :)
