Lifework

Lifework

 

the milk is gone and we need some for breakfast

the wastebaskets are full

 

a light bulb in the kitchen has burnt out

the toilet is running

 

the furnace filter needs to be replaced

a spider is in the tub

 

a branch has fallen down in the backyard

the car won’t start—

 

no matter what it is

Dad will take care of it—

 

you can always count on him
