My kitchen is in need of a fix
There is nowhere to plate up the kids Weetabix.
I want to invite family and friends round Show off my culinary delights,
And show the kids that dinner is not always delivered by men on bikes at night,
My Worktops are non-existent with a fridge freezer blocking the light,
I hope Mybuilder hears my plight.

I suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis a painful disease,
So I need appliances cupboards and drawers I can open with ease.
I’d love my kitchen re-fitting with worktop space galore
With lots of plugs sockets so using my gadgets would be easy instead of a chore
A new American fridge freezer plumbed in and my oven moved low
Cold water and ice cubes when we’re on the go.

Whoever designed it should have done the job right,
When I saw the spurs on his boots it should have switched on a light.
Cowboys do not always ride horses, they travel in vans,
And call themselves tradesmen and talk up big plans.

He wanted paying in cash to save me money he said,
And then he rode off with the cash and his mobile went dead
I waited and waited but he never returned,
I’ve learnt a lesson the hard way my fingers got burned.

So if you call a tradesman make sure he is vetted and reviewed,
If he asks for a fistful of dollars he is not a cool dude,
So just look him in the eye and proudly say “HEY PUNK YOU’VE MADE MY DAY”
Then send that COWBOY on his way!
