The Pipes, The Pipes have burst!!!
By Polly Guerin
The Pipes, The Pipes have burst
More than anything this is the worst
How shall we squelch our thirst
The plumber's back this is the first
Washing dishes in the bathroom sink
When will the pipes restore in a wink?
Another day delay and still no water
The pipes have seen the better sorter
Their old and tired what more can I say
'Cept, the plumbers back again today
Yes, the same one who came here
To my own apartment in yesteryear
Said he: "I kept the poem you wrote of me"
Really!!! I exclaimed with a note of glee
Alas, an urgent knocking at the door
Let me know the status what was in store
Frank,announced with supervisional pride
The pipes were restored, I need not hide
Then the water began to flow as it did before
Oh, this whole pipe episode was such a bore!
