The good wedding china you don’t ever use

Mom’s old pearls that you don’t want to lose

That white suit that only looks good when you’re tan

Your roomate’s gowns before he lived as a man

Baby’s old toys that he plays with no more

These are some things that are better off stored.


Your CD collection, now burned to your phone

Those furry handcuffs from when you lived alone

That lime-green bean bag chair you just can’t trash

The door-to-door steak-knives you thought would earn cash

Your bowling trophies from ’94

These are some things that are better off stored.


The Hillary ’08 posters you proudly displayed

The clothes you bought when fewer lbs. you weighed

A fish tank empty since your college days

Your Fonzie figurines when you loved “Happy Days”

Those crutches you used when your foot was so sore

These are some things that are better off stored.
