The Plumber

by damommza & sunovawot

Driving rain and creaking boards
leave me sweaty, breathless, cold
but leaky drippings from my spigot
send me thoughts of murder bold

He’s replaced all the fittings,
says ball stem is out of whack
new bonnet lock and sink aerator
Now I want my money back!

sewage backflow, why the hell
does he think i’m paying him
if the drains don’t resume their draining
guess i’l have to learn to swim

truly i had no choice he
held the bill out with a smirk
i took his hammer and with a yell
i showed him some honest work

  1. And who hasn’t thought they’d like to take a hammer and smash someone? (Stopping at the thought, of course).
    * Great story. I think you nailed it 😉 *

    I think we hit it right on the head! It was wrenching to write but we saw the need and hammered it home. You don’t really need this drilled into your head but it’s important to find one that a good fit and won’t drain you dry! *giggle*
