When Father Papered the Parlour
I never was too good at DIY,
Though I was pretty good at saying it,
DIY, but why?
So when it came to papering my lounge,
I had a bet; that I could make a go of it,
And believed I could, and yet,
I found the task quite daunting;
The walls weren’t straight, for one,
So it really was a challenge just to get the paper on.
And not just that, the pattern match was difficult as well;
The bluebells ended up in the trees
And the branches all had grass instead of leaves.
Oh well! Next time I’ll just paper the windows;
I’ll have a lovely outlook then.
