The Roll


R.L. Walker

"You'll know you've hung it right" said Pop,
"When this little flap here ends up on top."

"But, no, that's wrong!" (I counter-attacked,)
"Mom told me it should hang down in back."

"Well that's upside down" he quickly replied,
"Because this dispenser's mounted on the left hand side"

So I asked him, (somewhat amused,)
"So it all depends on which hand I use?"

He thought for a few seconds, then turned his head,
And with a knowing smile, he answered, and said:
"Left, or right, it matters not,
Flap in back, or flap on top, 
Who really cares?"  grinned my Dad,
"If the roll ain't empty, who's gonna be mad?"
