I met a builder from a vapid land,
Who said — “I can oust those pillars of wood,
Convert your cupboards to something less bland,
Give you a new artisanal range hood.
My amber hands spin drywall into gold,
The steel sink of your dreams is within sight
I’ll replace your floors with burnished vinyl,
Conjure elves to exalt this window height.
And on his business card these words appear:
My name is Mr. Xanadu Esquire
and I can give you light! Expand your view
With bounteous mirages of comfort,
But since it’s 2020, I can get it here by 2022.
Reduce the fee… If you give me support.
