Handy man

He only came to double her glazing
but stayed to fix the holes in her life
where the weather crept in
and played havoc with her self-esteem.

With his spirit level,
he converted her loft to a pagan faith,
and rendered her speechless with his crazy paving;
steadily, he raised her pain threshold
and helped to cement relations
with her family and friends.

In the fullness of time, he found himself
taking root in her vegetable patch:
now she will live happily ever after
making soup with his bones.
