Ode to the Bathroom Floor

Some of you may or may not know that Wodehouse also dabbled in poetry. In that enterprising spirit, I shall regale you with my own poetic presentation on what I’ve been doing this week. With photos!


O, carpeted bathroom destroyed by bad cat spray!
(Who carpets bathrooms? Ah, well. It just came that way…)
We’ve gutted you, pulling your threadworn cover out.
Won’t say sorry because, damn!, the odor was stout!
Time for some new style, new fun, new pizzazz, new looks:
So, on to Home Depot, Lowes, and big how-to books — 

Which we did not read, because we’re bad, bold wingers 
Who guess at tile wet saw use–makes for some zingers!

After much knee-breaking bending and heavy lifting,

after much finger-risking and tile-color sifting,
and, of course, a lot of energy expenditure… 
we arrived at the end of our big adventure!

Et VOILA! The results of our hard work and dedication:

A splendid, angled, pretty-looking presentation!
