I'm No Poet

Just days after demo
And all through the house
Not a creature is stirring
(Of course there's no mouse!)


Come on down the stairs
See what we've done
Many things we are changing
The fun's just begun!

Look all around you
What's there to be seen?
To me, a blank canvas
Awaiting a theme


There's a door over there
Can you guess where it goes?
There's nothing much left
Just a whole bunch of holes

A pipe drips a little
A pail catches the spill
Yet standing there gawking
Is oh such a thrill


The dumpster is full
The Boy has checked out
Extra muscle is handy
Yes, without a doubt

The next phase will rock
(Expense not withstanding)
Rebuilding feels good
Imaginations expanding!

And this is why we are hiring people to do work on our house. I exude unworthiness.

DOn't you kinda just want to strap on some roller skates and glide around?

Is it wrong of me that the first thing I thought when looking through those pictures was, "Damn! I wish I was 22 again!"? And does that totally skeeve you out?

scout said...

My, what big muscles the Boy has. So, how was that nude scene anyway? Did you look away?

Very well done. Every once in a while we get the bug to tear something down. We've been able to resist so far.
