My kettle this morning gave up the ghost,
My grill isn’t working and we couldn’t have toast.
My sweeper stopped working. There’s dust on my floor,
And when I put out my washing, it started to pour.
The drain is now blocked and the smell is atrocious
And even my sweet tempered dog’s now ferocious – grrr!
The freezer’s packed up and my ice cream’s all runny!
Oh, please stop your laughing – it’s not very funny!
The toilet’s not working and the electric is off.
I have a sore throat and developed a COUGH!!
The news on the tele made me sit down and weep.
But I thankfully awoke from this nightmarish sleep.
