The Bucket

As the water drips down the handle slowly making its way onto the floor.
Its story falls behind it.

From the sailors ship it comes from,
Sweeping all the decks
Used by many
Around the globe.

Past down from families
Lost in countries
Found by others
Used by many around the globe.

Left and lost
Old and tired
Its story falls behind it.
