My wife often will say

She’d make that dress right away…

If her sewing machine

Were set up, she means,

And I’ll softly “okay.”

I seem inadequate

Her wishes to do and get…

Things ready for her

to begin the whir

And start in with a project.

I wish someone else would come,

Getting the machine to hum…

So she can start

Without this old fart

Continuing to be a bum!
