Duct Tape


duct tape repairs are up there
with neurosurgery I reckon;
today it was an heirloom
'40below' sleeping bag saved
from fatal loss of fairy-down – 

a bit like arresting premature
balding you could say, while
observing sardonically “what
a useful piece of kit (meaning
duct tape
?) for SE QLD” – and
I’d agree; 

the sleeping bag dates back to 
those days where '40below'
defence was commonsense –
and the reason why I’m here...
