The Lowly Toilet Paper Roll

Often discarded,
never given a second thought,
we all have encountered 
the lowly toilet paper roll. 

Used to wind soft paper
round and round
meant to unwind little
by little to wipe the bum
when needed. 

But did you know?
Instead of discarding
the empty cardboard tube, 
use it to contain electric cords
on hair dryers, toasters
and other small appliances.
Just coil the cord
and slip inside the roll.
No more dangling cords
No muss, no fuss, no expense.
