Monster of Maintenance

This is just a little poem I wrote while at work.  It is dedicated to one of my co-workers.  You know who you are.

“Monster of Maintenance”

Monster of Maintenance, fixing my shit.

Dusty and dirty and smelling of sweat.

Changing the door handle on second floor.

His sweaty forehead is touching the door.
