MISTER DO IT YOURSELF

 

At the exact middle of my life

I met Mister Do It Yourself

When he saw me full of sadness

He asked: “ what do you desire the most, my friend ?”

And I answered :

 

“ A house full of love,

 An orchard in my yard,

 My poems gilded with gold,

 And a good heart with no regret.”

 

Then Mister Do It Yourself

Looked at me and said :

 

“ I am going to help you”

And then by magic, appeared

A spade, a pen and a glass of water.

The spade for the orchard

The pen for the poems,

And the glass of water

To swallow my Ego.
