Sweet Sue

Sweet Sue

A Poem by Dave Brown

 

That shapely sweet wooden Sue  

Was held together with carpenter’s glue

But it was critical she stay out of wet weather

To keep her sleek structure together

 

Tho’ the lady had been clamped quite tight   

Her slender veneer was constructed too light    

Water would make her dados all swell   

And her dovetails would all fail as well   

 

With naught but thin deciduous veneer           

And mahogany inlay from ear to ear  

It was not just water, but also would fire

Cause her beautacious board feet to expire

 

With best intentions being most ardent

She was dipped into mislabelled retardant

Unfortunately, the result of this wrongful course

Had her ending up, as a sawhorse

Great rhymes in this. I recall I dated with nice dados once. :)
