A certain couple remaining nameless
Was not in fear of being quite shameless
If anything needed a small repair
They would ignore it, pretend it’s not there.
The old house they lived in had electrical woes
The wires were frayed, and very badly exposed
Dangerous, sure, but mainly ignored
The old house chores,well, just made them bored.
One of the tenants was setting the clock
Heating the oven, received a hard shock
They ran to their cell to finally elicit
A repairman who would hopefully fix it.
I’m sad to report and sadder to say
The call from their cell came too late that day.
The shock ignited a flame up above
The ceiling and curtains flew up like a dove.
I know this tale is a sad one, ’tis true.
But a lesson to learn for both me and you
If your house needs fixing or minor repair
Then do it, or suffer resulting despair.
