(For Jonas)

The Sticky Paper Man

Does many things well as planned…

      Just one of his stints

      Is to capture shoe prints,

Recycling  resources is grand.

Here he comes with a white sheet

Of shiny paper looking neat….

      To stick on the floor

      Dirty shoes to adore,

But his job is just half-complete!

When the cleanroom needs cleaning again,

Around comes the Sticky Paper Man….

      One layer, prints and all,

      To recycling he’ll haul

A-pealing layers on demand.

But what happens to our shoe prints,

Are they recycled quick as a glimpse….

      Our prints, mostly dirt,

      In the ground will reinsert

‘Til it’s tracked in all again as cleaners wince.
