May I introduce…

The ancient eavesdropper

May I introduce…
the hammer to the nail
the pesticides to the garden snail
the sunflower seeds to the disheveled salad
the soft breeze to some hardened face
the basement to an attic space
the foot to the running mouth
the junk food to the brussel sprouts
the cuss word to a clean sentence
the cause to all bad habits
the ghost to a faded photograph
the seasons north to south
the cancer cell to the common cold
the plastic bottle to the recycling bin
the open book to the reading spectacles
the limelight to the darkest night
the blue ribbon to the consolation prize
the unborn child to the dying elder
the first noun to our final sound
