Survival Bracelets (Triple Haiku) - Poem by Kim Barney
Are not. What makes you think they
Could keep you alive?
Eight feet of colored
Paracord and one buckle
Will not save your life.
They are quite pretty.
Honestly, that's why they sell,
But they won't save you.
Poet's Notes about The Poem
Here in Recife I have not been able to find paracord, but I have found a plastic cord (100% polypropylene) that is almost the same size. The smaller bracelets are made of a smaller size cord, and some of the colorful bracelets in the picture are made out of shoelaces!
