We all know them...those wonderful men that go power crazy with a Power Tool in their hands....After all, what harm can a little DIY do......Help!!!!!

DIY......Not...



I know that I'm in trouble...
'Cos there's a gleam in me husband's eye...
Oh no, not at all what you may think..
He's about to do DIY...

He thinks that I will be impressed,
by the size of his nice big Drill...
His electric Saw, and his Staple Gun...
But I do not share his thrill...

His Laser Level, gets him on a high...
His Router keeps on whirring...
I see the MESS, He sees 'Grand Plans',
Now my panic mode is stirring...

He's crazy about his Power Tools,
as he begins the deconstruction...
Plaster flying here and there...
He's causing chaotic disruption!

He wears a beaming smile of joy,
as he stands there, all paint-splattered...
Dust-covered now, from head to toe...
My poor Bathroom looking battered...

He is my own dear Action man...
Oh, his work will be Bespoke...
This DIY should be DI..Don't!
Let's call in the Professional Bloke!!!

Very cute! Usually I'm DIYing right next to my hubby, though I leave the power tools to him.
