clutching at straws

2007-08 049 (3)

Holding broken straw

Clasped tight in hands

Golden broken strands,

That don’t add up to much

Couldn’t if they tried.

But so hard were they to win

Next to others’ gilded things,

They’re both a great deal

And a great deal of nothing

Just a poor-man’s stuffing.
