The Handyman

Endlessly Waiting


It’s been a week since
The handyman is not here
It is a problem

He had asked to stop
There are some other matters
He has to do first

I am still waiting
The woes of the homeowner
Is a job half done!

  5. A handyman isn't very handy I suspect if he doesn't want to be handy. But, hmmm,but still u wait. Enjoyed this much.

  19. Without poking fun at a frustrating situation (been there!), my first thought was 'I just want a man, who cares if he's handy?'... Not a very high-brow response, but still... Your poem evoked feelings! *smile*
