My Shed

A ball of twine, a washing line A bag of peat, an old dust sheet A rope Some wire An old flat tyre A roller-skate, a garden gate Some dry grass seed, a millipede A sack of sand, one glove, left hand A torch A mallet A painters pallet A cracked fish tank, a broken plank A headless gnome, some dried out loam An old bike bell, a snail shell A spade A fork A champagne cork The dogs toy bone, a traffic cone It's cleared away, it took all day I find it is, quite safe to say It used to fit, But who knows how My garden shed is empty now

Very well put and so true to all life found in sheds the length and breadth of the land. Enjoyed.

Man I love my garden shed. My son and I were outside cooking the turkeys for Thanksgiving in my smoker and we stood there admiring the shed and then we went and stood in it.
