Plumbers and Numbers.

Plumbers and Numbers.


are not very good with numbers;

when they tot up the bill

sum things just don’t add up;

still, they try; and fail,

and sirens wail

from Hull to hill

from hill to Hull, and in many seaside counties

whose days are numbered in ones and twos

plumbers resort to booze;

Lead piping astray by the solution

to the problem that has no answer;

questioning the aforementioned bill of boiler service, he pipes up: ‘Life’s a gas, man!’

and drives off in his white divan.

  1. Ha ha! I hoped on opening your message that you would be providing me with a plumber’s number as my washing machine fails to respond correctly. Alas, no number, but a sequence of welcome giggles instead.
