Extension Pruners

(A poem written for my friend’s father.)

A flurry of old crooners

In a rush to buy pruners

New on the market

Top branches the target

For short Baby boomers

And old ladies in bloomers

For the lethargically retired

No ladder required

Forget those short clippers

We’ve got far reaching snippers

There’s work to done

So get off yer bum

Knock back those schooners

It’s no time for swooners

get yourself some extension pruners

  1. My Dad, his Extension Pruner and all those other Men of a Certain Age who bought their pruners on the same day as my Dad, are now FAMOUS!!!!!

  2. The talk of work never ends, perhaps even more as we age. Love the rhymes which make it verge on silliness, but then human comedy becomes even more pronounced as we age! πŸ™‚
