PROMPT: Clutch at straws

Clutch at straws — And wondered why that was,

And why it seemed to be

Somebody put butter in

The scrambled eggs that were lost.

The most active thing in many ways

Is walking slowly along the lawn.

He asks me to lend him a bunch of scissors

To make a big hairy uncleful noise.

So when you put a piece of scissors

In a game, I know what it’s about
