Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #228 #Acrostic

Packed and ready in the corner

Over ‘neath the mantel-shelf

Red my leather binding bonds

Tightly tethered through each buckle

Metal hands grip firm each leather strip

Adjusted only for the journey

Never to release tight hold

Till we reach our destination

Even though the distance long

Accepting my task without complaining

Until I can rest, my purpose done.
