We've Got The Builders In
We've got the builders in,
all working class and hairy arsed
Cash in hand, cement and sand
Nothing measured, trust to luck
Rule of thumb
Don't give a fuck
Sharp intakes of breath
Clichés done to death
Music on, make a mess
Plasterboard, four by two
Six inch nails and superglue
Six hour day, six day week
Things explained in builder-speak
All wrapped up in build-mystique
Power tools, staple gun
Bound to look good when it's done

A poem which gathers pace, almost like a train. It captures the very essence of those who come into our homes to fix or renovate. I thoroughly enjoyed this poem.
Thank you for this

Here's wishing you the best of luck with that RG.
We had central heating put in upstairs a few years ago-frightening!

Again? Mind you, we have next week. How could anyone not enjoy this poem? Great stuff.
