KNIGHT IN SHINNING ARMOUR:
Last Friday being the loving mother I am,
Decided to help my daughter and son.
I sent them some cash through the post,
To help with winter heating costs....what fun.
I wrapped up warm with scarf and gloves,
To avoid the frosty air.
Walked to the post office and posted said letters,
Came home without a care.
It was cold in my apartment on reaching home,
The electric fire was a must.
I switched it on.......it went bang.
It had blown boy, didn't I cuss.
A few hours later I happened to see
The gentleman who lives below.
I told him of my plight
After he said "Hello".
He came to view the sad fire,
Took it to his apartment to test.
An hour later returned with a smile on his face,
He plugged it in with jest.
He used to be a handyman,
And had some new bars for the fire.
If I didn't feel like kissing him then and there
Then I would be a liar.
The fire works perfectly,
My "Knight In Shinning Armour" made it so.
There are some kind people around,
And one right under my nose.
