The Wrecking Company

 

The Wrecking Company

 

By Elton Camp

 

Penny was knitting in the living room

When, against the wall, a terrible boom

A wrecking ball crashed inside

First, poor Penny tried to hide

 

She rushed out the back door

To see a sight she did abhor

Her house being knocked to the ground

She rushed to the foreman with a frown

 

“How dare you destroy my house this way!”

Penny gaped at its ruins in utter dismay

Too bad, I am just following orders, ma’am.”

“You can’t be and you had better scram!”

 

“Demolish 102 North Oak Street it does say.

So that’s the reason I am doing this way.”

Just as the final wall of her house fell,

“Idiot, this is South Oak,” she did tell

 

“Sorry about that,” was his flip reply

“To be more careful, I’ll have to try.”

As the wrecking crew drove away

A final word the foreman did say

 

“Everybody makes an occasional mistake.

To my supervisor, please don’t bellyache.

You could even cause me to be fired

It was only last week that I was hired.”
