Better

Have you called your handyman?

About four years ago.

Been seeing him since.

What? Really?

You can do better than that.

Oh, I’ve done better.

I did better for 20 years.Handyman

Better was egotistical.

Better was a bully.

Better was complicated.

Better was busy

And never had the time

For his lowlife

Of a wife,

The little miracles

That were his children.

So if that’s better

I’ll take worse.

Because yah,

I’ve called my handyman.

And guess what?

He’s been on the line

With me

Ever since.
