In preparation for the New Year

Mend what is broken with your
Pins and needles.
Patch it up with rags and cloths.
Do not leave any holes in the socks.
Imagine having to take your shoes
Off at a friend's house. Imagine
Walking around with a hole in the sock.

Mend what is broken with
Clay and plaster.
Patch it up with cement.
Do not leave a crack on the
Wall. The safety of your life is at peril.
