Skip Hire

Moved in, hired a skip

In here time stood still

Dealt with the daughter

Her dad gone, taken ill


Bathroom has lead pipes

Ceilings tobacco-stained

Window timbers rotten

Wet-rot well-engrained


Valuers took the quality

I'm left with foisty rugs

Sixties-style bric-a-brac

A zoo of domestic bugs


Fifty years in this semi

Kids married, wife dead,

Making history on the

Iron springs in the bed


Took him to a care home

Before seeking a buyer

Memories carted off by

Dementia and skip hire

Enjoyed this Simon. A sad tale in that for many of us all we'll have left at the end of our lives is stuff only fit for the skip.
