.4. Floored - Poem by David Threadgold

I’m making a few home improvements
My loft is to get a new floor
Chipboard arrived on a lorry
And slipped off the back near my door

Economy eight by four sheeting
In bulk saved me nearly ten pound
Some warped and chipped on the edges
Lay there in a heap on the ground

The first sheet came in through the doorway
I offered it up for a match
But eight by four sheets are a problem
When there’s only a two by two hatch

Back out of the door to the garden
Threw eight by four board back on pile
I’ve gone off the idea of flooring
So there it will sit for a while
