All at Coo & Co renew our thank-coos to members of the Editorial Team :>)

Due to our workload, we have not had time to write any new poetry lately. However, here is a rap by our FT, brought up to date since its first outing on The Mighty...

High-rise low-rise

One day in May last year I bought a flat way out of town --
it's in a sturdy tower block of bricks, some red some brown;
there's level access in and after that a nifty lift,
and in my flat just one or two things that I need to shift.

I need to take the bath out, put a shower in instead;
I asked if I could do this. 'Yes,' the flats committee said,
but later on they changed their minds and made their answer 'No';
I asked them why I couldn't -- it was just cos they said so.

I kept on asking 'Why?', until they said perhaps I could --
I had to get an expert, a surveyor from the 'hood;
he came one Monday with his pen and clipboard, camera too,
took pictures of the bath and stuff, and peered behind the loo.

He sent his findings late on Thursday night, in a report --
it covered five whole pages, so it wasn't very short;
his costs weren't cheap, but it was worth the price I had to pay --
he says that I can have a bespoke low-rise shower tray!

Coo comments...
I am pleased to report that we moved into our new abode in late March this year, following many months of preparations. The said bespoke low-rise shower tray proves an excellent option for our FT, who has severe arthritis, and we fully recommend it to persons with similar mobility problems :>)
