My home


I asked for a good house to be built
and a builder built the home for me
he came everyday to collect his bills
I paid all his dues and moved in here
he then was never to be seen again.

To my horror, I found the taps leaking
the walls all wet, the floors creaking
the power fluctuating, the roof jittery
crying out to me for help including me.

Then an army of fitters, plumbers and
electricians came, they drilled a hole in
my pocket, my wallet started leaking
I was getting shocks at seeing their bills

How I wished I never built this house
which has become a stay for many a
plumber, a tile fitter and an electrician
and how I wish to meet the builder once
after which he will never build a house…
