Poetry Here (Mostly)

The Price of Lint #239


Soon our money will be spent

fixing up our drier vent.

Thought that Sears could do the job,

but they’re just a high-priced mob.

 

I think the clothesline’s good enough

unfailing sun dries all our stuff.

He wants bath towels extra soft,

they’re too rough when hung aloft.

 

Received another estimate,

more fair than the one Sears sent.

Still, they need to break a wall,

pipe to the roof and that’s not all.

 

From the line a bird takes wing,

that’s where I still hang our things.

Lawn and sky comply with codes,

natural vents for washer loads.
