Duane Vorhees writes

   --after Yun Dongju

If we cut the paper this way it's a coat
If we cut it this way it's a rifle.
Older Sis and I
did cut, cut that paper
and then Mother
spanked us each once
with the broomstick
because the floor was a mess --

Uh uh Mom
It was the stupid broomstick
it chose not to sweep the floor
that's why that's why
insolent we hid it in the closet
Next morning broomstick was missing
Mother made a fuss.
