For want of a nail the shoe was lost;
For want of a shoe the horse was lost;
For want of a horse the battle was lost;
For the failure of battle the kingdom was lost—
All for the want of a horse-shoe nail.
Let me share my version:
For want of a button the shirt was lost.
That’s it. I don’t have anymore lines. No button, no shirt.
Motivated by my post on how I store all my clothes, I have attacked my clothes-needing-mending pile.
Two shirts, both needing a button sown on, have now made it to my wardrobe.
And look! Two “new” items of clothing without spending a cent.
Happy? You bet ya!
