O! Accident! You rear your stupid face,
When glass is smashed upon my kitchen floor,
From clumsy, clutzy, butterfinger-whoops,
And things are nasty sharp which weren’t before.
O! Accident! As welcome as a wart,
When bang my head without a builder’s hat,
From unobservant, absent-minded fool,
And head is bumpy where it once was flat.
O! Accident! You accidental der*,
When hammer on a nail attached to hand,
From useless when it comes to DIY,
And things go all to pot ‘though caref’lly planned.
*as in “Der, ficko, irriot!”
