House of Commons
Our house is full of useful things
Hairless brooms and uncoiled springs

Half used batteries and bits of wire
Old fashioned plugs and half a plier

Elastic bands that have lost their stretch
Used up pads with no room for a sketch

Draws full of nails and rusty screws
Piles of papers on yesterday’s news

A wind up gramophone, a ten inch disc
A food processor with only one whisk

An armchair that is minus one leg
Propped up by an empty old keg

A table with the top worn away
One has to eat one’s food off a tray

Paint tins empty on the shelf
After somebody thought he’d do it himself

A swivel chair that has lost it’s twist
An old dart board and the darts that missed

A bike with one pedal and a flat back tire
An ancient plugless electric fire

Broken door locks that have no keys
Left-handed golf clubs and right –handed tees

A camel stool without a head
A one eared cat that sits on the bed

The door bell works, but never rings
Our house is full of useful things
