The Jobber’s Jobs

The way he cleared the site… that was thorough
The clearings sorted into piles, biodegradable and non-perishable

The way he loaded the metals and plastics into the skip… that was admirable

The way he constructed a bonfire, safe so the flames wouldn’t spread… that was neighbourly

The way he mounded the lighter organic materials to be composted… that was masterly

The way he levelled the ground now cleared… that was careful

The way he measured and drove in the pegs… that was skilful

But the way he dug that hole… that was abysmal

    Love this. And looking up from the abyss – gotta admit, it’s pretty smart, too 😉
