It’s not going to fix itself, nor will it just go away,

Each day reminded the job is still incomplete.

Never claiming to be handy with tools,

little interest in learning.

The project stands there a daunting tribute

to my incompetence.

Parts of varying shapes and sizes surround the workspace,

never finding the needed tool.

Pieces breaking in the rush to just get the damn thing done,

return trips to the hardware store, the staff entertained by failure.

A wiser breed will pay the pro and not attempt such a venture,

next time that will be me.
