BYE. MR. TREE!

GOODBYE, MR. TREE!

We had to move our cars today

Away from Mr. Tree…

Maintenance would cut away

The branches first, then he.

Scrawny little pine tree,

Crooked from years…

Of seeing old ones come and go,

For you but little tears!

The beetle bugs have topped you off,

Eaten your growing tips…

And soon will be your legacy,

A scented pile of chips!

MAINTENANCE VISITING

MAINTENANCE VISITING

Maintenance coming to fix

Things that need revamp…

Not sure what-all they wull do

But in our apartment we’ll camp.

Tomorrow the wife must face alonE

The visiting maintenance crew…

For I’ve an appointment

That I must go to.

She said the dishes must be done,

I washed about half for sure…

Tomorrow I’ll find what else they’ll fix–

Is it just from ceiling=to=floor?

The maintenance guy’s list

Was taken from our inspection’s gist…

Don’t know what to move

So they can improve,

The complex’s statistics!

WINTER DAMAGE REPAIR

WINTER DAMAGE REPAIR…

(in Tanka form)

Rake, shovel and pile,

Maintenance once I was on…

Drop cloth dragged to woods:

Chore breeds discussion on size,

Two pull while another digs.
