Like a Timex

Through lickings, like a Timex, my husband’s hard-core. Evermore, heart ticking, he goes on. They don’t make his model any more. Not cut out for college, he gathered lore in his craft; he learned it all, hands-on. Through lickings, like a Timex, my husband’s hard core. Into night he’d often work, his body sore, developing both calluses and brawn. They don’t make his model any more. Once a fall from two floors up he bore! Days later he was at his work by dawn. Through lickings, like a Timex,my husband's hard-core. Robbed and scammed; so much to abhor! This self-made man felt like a woebegone. They don’t make his model any more. New trials that he never knew before now face him, but he’s still a hanger-on. Through lickings, like a Timex, my husband’s hard core. They don’t make his model any more.

    A good man you've got there. I've nothing but admiration for his gumption and your wonderful explication of his merits. Hats off to you both. Jack

    Awesome tribute! This is such a unique way to write a villanelle. Your husband sounds like an admirable fellow. I agree with you - They sure don't make men like that anymore (at least not in my experience!)
