I awoke this morning and rose from my bed,
Took a shower 'neath my clean showerhead.
As I got out I heard a strange sound,
It sounded like a pound, pound, pound!
I rushed to the window and peeked right out,
And constrained myself from giving a shout.
(For he might turn around and I was nude,
If he was to look, it would be a bit rude...)
What to my wondering eyes did appear
was a maintenance man with a hat 'bove his ears.
I saw wooden planks standing strait and tall
and my fence now quite solid, a great wooden wall!
Thank you maintenance man for doing your job,
for doing it quickly and not like a slob.
We'll enjoy our strong fence, with our yard on the mend,
Until the next strong wind blows it down yet again!
