Your attempts at mending the clockwork toy
were merely all in vain
for that all elusive part that you look
has gone towards the drain
you were cleaning each part in the sink
when a part or two headed for the brink
a travel down to the sewage farm
you thought you had saved them – without harm
but searching the u-bend – they cannot be seen
so a venture to the jewellers – you are keen
in order to obtain a replacement part
to get the toy working – well its a start.
Your trip to the jewellers – you had to do
for that part you needed – just wasn’t a screw
if only you’d thought to look under your foot
that part you were looking for is stuck – in your boot!
