My fellow Americans.
We are falling apart.
Don’t take my word for it.
Just look at all the glue for sale.
From Hinckleys to Dollar General to Super S to Donop’s.
It’s all about glue.
Some stores carry 50 different kinds.
Talk about an epidemic.
It’s enough to make a person come unglued.
Apparently we’re all cracked.
Broken in two.
Or busted all to pieces.
Gorilla Glue can do the job.
"Toughest glue on Planet Earth," they claim.
But it doesn’t stop there.
We’ve got Wood Glue.
(Every household needs cement.)
The list goes on.
Stik n’ Seal.
Future Glue (for the pessimist).
Because you can’t fix the past.
Then there’s Poxy.
Master Mend Epoxy (must have experience to apply).
Microwave Energized Glue (hmmm…).
And America’s all-time favorite …
What a crack-up.
Now where’s that Krazy Glue…
