APAD 8: Patched

Patched

The Band-Aid was invented

by a man for his whirlwind wife

and her frequent minor injuries.

 

His invention was adopted, adapted and released

into a not-very-interested market.

The uptake was so slow

that Band-Aids were given free

to fellow whirlwinds –

the Boy Scouts.
