Plumb Bob Sanitation Blues

In a world of weary O rings
Bouncing ballcocks in the vat
Stopcocks seized up motionless
Tragic heating thermostat
Buckets filled from sopping leaks
Stubborn washbowls will not drain
Sewage streams are backing up
We need new carpets once again
Send for Bob the Plumber chap
A toolbox wizard with a wrench
His magic tricks will mishap fix
And bleed away the putrid stench
He’ll tighten up those sweaty glands
Heal the splish-splash drippy blues
Set our sanitary sweet again
Flowing water free good news

Written for Bob Armstrong a very special local plumber
