The adjustor's coming here in order to assess
If our home insurance plan will cover for the mess
Winter left behind it with its snow and wind and ice;
Taking out our stairs and dripping through the ceiling... Twice.
So, I have to clean the house - again - a task I hate.
We've sure had a lot of strangers visiting of late;
Coming by in preparation for the reno start...
There's a lot of work before they tear your house apart.
This place hasn't looked so neat since we had both the boys
And we filled it up with our accumulated toys.
But, I can't have people here discussing future jobs
Learning that they're working for a bunch of lazy slobs.
