The Stripper

Out to our secret garden, I go,
No one's looking, I start the show,
Under the Pergola, out of the sun,
Dogs disappear so they miss the fun.
I check the back and all is clear,
My seat is better than I did fear.
Looking down I see my spindly legs,
After all these years, they are nice pegs,
Another check, just to make sure,
I start to strip in the morning air,
Down to shorts and croc's, I don't care.
After a few strokes and a cup of tea,
I'm bowing and scraping for all to see.
The old is cast off and on the floor,
A few more strokes and I lose some more.
What I see now looks pretty neat,
Now phase one is done and all is bare.
Tomorrow morning, I will repaint this chair.

Badly done? I'll have you know I worked hard in very humid conditions that caused me to renew my flagging spirits with numerous cans of beer before the finished chair was there standing in all its glory! Badly done indeed hmmph! Nice to see you too Anne-Lise. God Bless. D.
