My bathroom upgrade


The bathroom needs an upgrade

I’m sure it won’t take long

Just reline the walls she said

What can possibly go wrong

Well the sinks in the backyard

The waters everywhere

Flowing from a broken pipe

And running down the stair

The old toilets leaking

And the smell is rather rank

This very simple upgrade

Is about to break the bank

The plumber man is laughing

He thinks I’m a fool

There’s nothing to have a bath in

I forgot the cardinal rule

When someone says diy

It’s the “y” that really counts

As in “why should I”

The costs really mount

So when this job is finished

And all is well and done

My DIY skills diminished

And the plumbers had his fun

I’m hanging up my hacksaw

My hammers in the bin

I’m running out the back door

Before my wife gets in!

        As a plumbing and heating man recently retired due to ill health and with a bathroom much in need of a facelift/update, you poem really struck home here.

        A really entertaining piece and into my favourites too.
