When Father Papered the Parlour, Val J Chapman


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.
