For want of a nail

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!
