Gutter And Drain

When the man who cleared my
gutter went to empty the gunge
from his bucket I said
not on my precious garden put it
down the drain so he did.
There was more than I expected.
……………….. Ooooops !! …………….

We both pumped my yard
broom handle up and down
in the drain put several
bucketfuls of water down
so the gunge and water
washed away down the drain
…………….most of it …………….

Over several days I plied
broom handle and bucket
but a stubborn layer of gritty
stuff clung to the gulley
trap and the drains water
level stayed well up.
……………… hmmm ! …………….

I rang the drains company.
Two men came with their
drains snake hose which
one pumped up and down
while the other turned on
taps in my little flat then
checked the other flats’
drains. At last all the
gunge was gone and the
drain was empty of water.

Soon I will receive a bill
for two drains people’s time.
