On the mend

They don’t seem to make things to be mended these days; am I a vanishing breed?

y passion is for mending things,
I’m just that sort of bloke.
To me, a thing’s more interesting
If it’s well and truly broke.

A rattly bike, a wobbly chair,
A clock whose tick needs curing:
What other folk would throw away
I really find alluring.

Just give me pliers, nuts and bolts,
A hammer, tape and glue,
And give me something old and broke –
I’ll make it just like new.

I can’t resist the urge to fix
Whatever needs restoring;
New things that always work okay
Are boring, boring, BORING!
