If it’s broke. . .

There are fewer opportunities these days to demonstrate one of my handy life skills.

Most things, in ages past,
Though less dependable,
Were mendable.

You’d get your box of tools
And take the thing apart –
A vanished art?

If something broke in two
You’d nail it, screw it,
Or glue it.

A blank TV? Just buy
A valve and fit it.
(Or hit it!)

But nowadays, you must –
You’ve got to face it –
Replace it.
