HANDYMAN

THE  HANDYMAN     CAN

I spent my Tuesday with 2 young

handymen  Tony was thick  with

dimples  & a cherubic smile   Grant

a simple man   was clumsy  yet honest    (I’ll throw in the gasket Miss)

 

It turns out that Tony loves Mozart

& Grant the Bible   He spoke in parables:

It’s like cheating on your golf swing   You

only cheat yourself

 

At the end of the day we were $877 in the red

Grant left whistling a tune  & Tony headed off

to bed his wife with matching dimples   *(all true)

 

At 4 a.m. I was wide awake   It is highly likely

we overpaid    I heard Amadeus cackle  & saw

Ben Hogan shake his head   Suddenly a bright sign

flashed at the foot of our bed   Suckers  Suckers

it seemingly read

__

Hey girls, gather round, listen to what I’m putting down.
Hey babe, I’m your handy man.
I’m not the kind to use a pencil or rule, I’m handy with love 
and I’m no fool.

James Taylor  1977
