A Glass Half Full of Stuff to Read


What's so great about do-it-yourself

They say that it's fun and good for your health

They say it saves money

And helps you make friends

And is the ideal way to spend a weekend


They said do-it-yourself

So I did it myself

And do it I did and it never got done

Now because I tried to build a shed

I'm lying in a hospital bed

And I can tell you it sure wasn't fun


My memory's blank

I got hit by a plank

That was balanced on some blocks

I stumbled and flailed

And got stuck on some nails

Hidden inside the shed's box


As if that wasn't enough

When it was finally up

The roof decided to fall off

Now I'm lying in bed

Bandaged, half dead

I look a bit like a mummy

Yes you may laugh

As I have my spongebath

But I'm telling you that it isn't funny


And as for the shed

It's now down the tip

I should have built myself

A pyramid.
