Bit of Ache
listen

My father taught me how to drill, when
 1
I was
 2
 
just five years old.
 3
 
I liked it;
 4
liked making holes,
 5
looking through
 6
 
with smooth ease.
 7
 
When he told me I had
 8
illness, I told him
 9
I’d
 10
 
board up
 11
my self, so that I would
 12
never hurt again.
 13
 
Only, he was the one to fasten the nails.
