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.
