Ode to the Hardware Store

I love our hardware store
The folks there are just the greatest
I truly couldn’t love it more
Here, let me tell you of the latest:
Our lawn mower was broken
It needed to be fixed
“We need to buy one that’s new!”
No sooner had that been spoken,
Than that idea was nixed
Our love for the hardware store grew.

George will always help us,
Always stop to chat.
Even when we’re in a rush to catch the bus,
He’ll help us to do that.
All the smells in there combine,
The screws, the wood, the paint,
The sandpaper, all the little parts,
All send chills up my spine.
George keeps coming through, like a Saint.
We’ve got him in our hearts.

If you want to write your own ode, let e-how help you! And yes, with a little bit of help, we managed to fix our lawnmower and our washing machine for under $10.
