TJ’s Weekly Household Haiku Challenge: Paper Knife (What’s that?)

TJ Paris has been offering his weekly household item haiku challenge and this week’s challenge is a paper knife.

What’s a paper knife, you may ask? I asked the same thing, one day in my college Spanish class.

Here is my haiku:


Printed in Madrid.
Bring your paper knife to class.
Book learning made real.
