SOLDERING ON

SOLDERING ON!

Great news from the home front.

A logjam’s opened wide…

‘Though duct tape won’t keep in place

Wires thus applied.

Surfaces were dirty

And oily from the dust…

His new iron was slow at first

But hot enough–just!

In saving money he scrimped

In quality again…

More power would’ve been easier

To a clear message send.

He cleaned the rail as best he could

Without ┬árecommended stuff…

GOO GONE did as advertised,

‘Though used off the cuff.

Everything sticking,

He pulled one soldered joint free…

Remember to pre-strip your wires:

Satisfaction guaranteed!
