The fix it man

March 13, 2019

Fix this, fix that, build this thing from a master plan!

Make me a thingamajig or two, as quickly as you can.

The Farmer squawks frenetically, fabricators jump,

repair work must be quick! We are under the pump.

My Whatsit is broken, and you are the Fix it Man!

So please, repair it in a hurry, just as fast as you can!

The harvester has broken in the middle of this heat,

I blame it on a broken mounting bush, under his seat.

Mill a piece of steel and cut thread inside the hole,

bend that solid bar and weld it firmly to the pole.

Machine the round brass bushes, to fit so very neat,

Solder every joint, with just the right amount of heat!

Finally, all fixed, a happy farmer, now quickly on his way,

thanks to the repairman, who again has saved the day!
