The Fuse Box Is In the Basement

 

The Fuse Box Is In the Basement

 

By Elton Camp

 

When one circuit goes out at night

It gets me in an embarrassing tight

 

It’s that fuse that has blown before

But to replace it, I do so abhor

 

The switch is at the foot of the stair

It’s pitch black in the basement there

 

To hunt the flashlight I never mind

It’s a thing I never am able to find

 

I must reach inside and fumble around

Till the basement light switch I’ve found

 

The bad location I silently curse

What arrangement could be worse

 

But down the stairs I fearfully tread

What may be inside, I loathe & dread

 

Logic and reason say it’ll be okay

But the heart another thing does say

 

Some frightful fiend lurks within

With glowing eyes and evil grin

 

But childish fears I have to shed

I can’t ask my wife to do it instead
