My House

By | 10 February 2008

My house is out of square,
The ground-plan laughable,
Walls leaning, ceilings drooping.
Tradesmen swear at not finding
Right angles-but it's easy
To make repairs, a touch of paint
(Of a different colour) covers up
New work, making everything
As good as old.
I'm glad to look up
And not see straight lines,
Nothing made truer than true.
It helps thought not to have
A four-square plan, so nothing,
However awkward, stands out.
