  • Mechanically Challenged

    My “Guy Genes” got lost Somewhere,
    questions if I have a Pair?
    Was not One to Work on Cars,
    engines Seemed like Built on Mars.

    DAD – “The Home Improvement Don,”
    could have Built the Parthenon.
    On my Hide he’d Liked to Wail,
    could Not pound Down a Straight Nail.

    Cardboard Kitchen – up All Night,
    if saw Santa – I would Bite!
    Sink Disposal – that went Well,
    to Bail me Out was Quite the Bill.

    Small things Broken stay that Way,
    unless with Duct Tape they will Stay.
    Those who think That may Sound Hot,
    A MacGyver I am not.

    So I live Like half a Man,
    get Redemption where I Can.
    Every morning in My Home,
    Zip up Trousers on MY OWN!

    You really should publish this Bob. Or become a stand-up comic. Your talents with rhyme and humor abound.

      Thank you. Your comments are enough for me. If others like what I write - that is only a plus.

        "On my Hide he’d Liked to Wail,"
        I thought it right to spell
        that old American occupation
        "Whale" but Google
        only talks Cetaceans

          Witty as always JT. I've seen it spelled 'wale' in this context. One of the reasons English is so maddening for many.

          What’s the difference between a woman who can’t cook or bake and a man who can’t unclog a toilet? Industrial arts and home economics not even offered in some schools but you can take Latin. Perhaps you can find an ancient Roman to talk to.

            They had both when I was in HS a "long time" ago but I took neither. Probably part of my problem?
