Clean It Up With Bleach - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Every inch of the fabric has been soiled.
The stars do not appear as bright.
The stripes are frayed and not as tight!
The color blue is not as crisp.
And those who wore this now have quit!

The fit itself seems much outdated.
It's best to toss it than to save it!
Unless someone is known who craves it?
But the assessment of what here appears...
Is to clean it up with bleach,
And then use it for your tears!
