I hate it when a glass I break

it shatters everywhere

those bits and chunks they lie in wait

for people unaware.



Even after broom has swept,

some pieces 'scape the trash

until their chance to play a prank

some time post nasty crash.


It's worse when there are children near

or pets that roam the floor



as now you're bound to worry when

they come in through the door.


So re-peruse the surface where

the splintering took place

make sure all sneaky slivers go

away in any case.
