Hector The Collector

Rating: 2.6

Hector the Collector
Collected bits of string,
Collected dolls with broken heads
And rusty bells that would not ring. Bent-up nails and ice-cream sticks,
Twists of wires, worn-out tires,
Paper bags and broken bricks.
Old chipped vases, half shoelaces,
Gatlin' guns that wouldn't shoot,
Leaky boasts that wouldn't float
And stopped-up horns that wouldn't toot. Butter knives that had no handles,

Copper keys that fit no locks

One man's junk is another man's treasure. Whoever typed this poem into Poem Hunter surely made a typo on line ten. That would only make sense if it said LEAKY BOATS instead of LEAKY BOASTS.
