Why Not Do Some DIY?

Why not do some DIY?

It’s really easy – have a try!

You’ve got a set of shelves to make?

A doddle! Breeze! A piece of cake!

Let’s find the things you need to use:

Some nails, a hammer, drill and screws.

Then make a hole, that’s right, like that.

Oh whoops! You almost drilled the cat.

But never mind. Now use those screws.

Your pants are fastened to your shoes?

Oh, not to worry. Leave them there

And go and buy another pair.

Now give that nail a little bash.

Oh dearie me, what was that crash?

What’s that you say? The wall’s come down?

Well clear it up! No need to frown!

Next get that plank. The roof’s caved in?

Just shove the ceiling in the bin!

That plank is not entirely straight,

But still, be proud, it’s looking great!

The house collapsed? Don’t sit and cry.

It’s fun to do this DIY!

Your home is kind of wrecked, I know.

But why not mend it, have a go!

After all, you made that shelf,

And hey, you did it all yourself!
