Mr. “Do It Myself”

Mr. “Do It Myself”

The manifold reasons I love you are these.
Though you puff and you pant and you groan and you wheeze,
recruiting much help from your back and your knees,
nonetheless, my piano you managed to squeeze
up the stairs to the tower, saying it was a breeze.
So as I snap a photo, be sure to say, “Cheese,”
then promise me, dear, for I’m down on my knees.
If we move it again, hire a moving crew, please!!!!




Prompt words today are recruit, piano, manifold and tower.

      It is fiction, but I have a friend who was given a grand piano and somehow the men got it up to her third story Apt. I think they got a crane and put it up over her balcony, but I know they also had to remove the stair railing…perhaps to get her other piano out. Not sure. Where there is a will there’s a way but now she’ll never be able to move.

        You know what James Bod said, “Never say never again.”
        Mine is not a grand, but it’s a huge upright. It’s my mother’s old piano. I couldn’t bring myself to part with it, and anyway, I still play.
