I once bought a gift for my friend who was sweet.
Since it was her birthday I bought her a treat.
The problem, of course, was I’d nothing for wrap—
No gift-bags or paper. Not even a scrap.

But I am resourceful, and I had a thought.
I’d wrap it in something quite soft that I’d bought.
A wrapping so lovely I’d make the girl weep—
The paper from toilets is lovely and cheap!
