ODE TO -----------

Description:Time to get back to basics. This month let's write an ode to something common. Ice cube tray, diaper, beer mug, anything commonly found. Rhyme or not but should have good rhythm. Stanzas up tp 5 lines each and around six stanzas. So let's see how many things will get an ode written to them for the first time lol. BTW will be looking for high language uses for the common object.
