The Collector

A man who collected rare stamps
Abjured them in favor of lamps.
Along with bent spoons
And old Celtic runes,
He also collected C-clamps!

  3. I wonder if he trades C-clamps. I’ve never seen a vise I haven’t wanted. 😀

    I really like the sounds of this one, particularly the not of delight that rings out of the last line.

  4. C clamps? That sounds like some sort of contraceptive device:)

      Alas, they are only clamps shaped like the letter C.
