I Need a New Roof
There’s a hole in my roof That lets the light in
the sun, the cold, the rain.
There’s a hole in my roof That’s lets my life out
Through rot and cost, and pain.
I clearly don’t know what happened
It all was going so well
The one fine day I noticed a spot
Where mold was starting to dwell.
The rain was creeping into the house
And mold was growing all-round
Should I attempt to fix this thing
That someday would bring the house down?
” Need New Roof” my spouse cried out
“No Money” was my reply
‘Get up there and fix it’, she returned
Creating a tear in my eye.
‘Fear not!’ He said as he arrived,
I’ll save the day and repair this one too,
Look here; I have many-a-proof.
He showed his list of happy homeowners
That he had recently saved.
Then blasting to work he repaired this thing
The dust and mold he braved.
So here I sit, again at peace
A brand-new roof I own
” Need New Roof” no longer my task
My spouse now sports a new tone.
