CCC182: The New Black

We used to Mend and Make Do
Then after the war a new generation arose
More energy than money
They Did It Up and made it like new
They were all arty
And crafty
That generation put on some years
And where before they’d done up
Now they tastefully Converted
Generations come in waves
The next swept in
The nouvelle crowd with their nouvelle cuisine
Maintaining style with eyes that were keen
These enterprising builders Renovated
Now today’s generation talk of the New This and the New That
Like black’s the new white and white’s the new black
And they look at this barn and inspiration rushes
Cleary this building has to be Repurposed
