Money Pit House poem

Updated on February 27, 2013

Det Lille Hus

The Little House.. Det Lille Hus

Det Lille Hus

It was used for shelter in World War I

Most don’t remember its rhyme or reason

The wood looked slapped together

Up and down, nothing straight or in line

It was too little for my mind

So expand it with plenty of light

The savings dwindled you must wait

Still too little for this empire we built

Again the hammers pry off those crooked boards

Adding on a room of windows and doors

Is it enough space to survive

Not unless there are five skylights

Cats stood up on hind feet and pointed to the sky

Alright one more addition for the felines

Stairs were built for them to climb

Above a feline’s heaven of light

Det Lille Hus stole the pocketbook

And took flight

(Poem about a fixer upper house -Money Pit)
