The 29th Day--Hyperbole Poem--Buttons

On this next to the last day of April's National Poetry Month I greet you. Today's poem is a Hyperbole Poem about which you may read here. And this is my poem:

Buttons are the greatest things
They keep our clothes intact.
Just think if you had none of them
There'd be a bad impact

Buttons keep our shirts on
And sometimes pants as well
And if you cut off all of them
Embarrassment would tell

Sometimes I think that buttons
Must often feel so small
So many of them look the same
No claim to fame at all

But when you do without them
You wish that they were there
Keeping it all together
And in resplendent care.
