Because of my current vacuum blues
A new one I am forced to choose
I have no extra funds to lose
I’m not a spendthrift–that’s not news.
We took it all apart and cleaned
Nothing unusual was seen
Screwed it back and tried to clean
Doesn’t work, now that’s just mean!
Throw it out, someone suggested
What about the money vested
Shouldn’t it work, am I being tested?
Have that salesman be arrested.
Calm yourself I tiredly thought
Wasn’t the best one that I bought
But still it should work, should it not?
Choosing a new one is what I’ve wrought.
