evrythin’s broke ‘n I know not what to do.
a backed-up sink, A clock that sticks, ‘n oven that refuses to clean.
this stuff ain’t old but tisn’t new they’ve just been used ‘n abused.
lights ‘a flicker’ en, A furnace cut ‘in out
overflow ‘in toilets gutters ’n drains
rot ‘en sidin’ chew’ d up in bits
home to ‘n army of carpenter ants
traded a home built of wood ‘n nails
for a hi rise ‘partment of concrete ’n steel
8 years young ‘n in vogue ‘n modern
still with out flaws.
3 sinks that back up
a stove that won’t clean
a balcony in a war zone
fight ‘in off pigeons with whate’er means
not ‘in is perfect there’ll always be wear ‘n tear
but wouldn’t it be nice to spend the day
‘n a fully function’ in kitchen
with bathrooms flow ‘in freely
a pigeon free balc’ny to sit ‘n visit
no poop no mess just you ‘n me ‘n a cup of tea
enjoy your evening and your week,
