He built it himself.
A wooden quilt patched with nails.
It kept out the wind.

He liked what he saw.
And on the door he painted
In bright red “Stay Out.”

It was near a lake.
He could hear water nearby.
But he never swam.

In the summertime,
The house was sticky with heat,
And sap ran wet and hot.

Favorite Quote:
First dentistry was painless.
Then bicycles were chainless,
Carriages were horseless,
And many laws enforceless.

Next cookery was fireless,
Telegraphy was wireless,
Cigars were nicotineless,
And coffee caffeineless.

Soon oranges were seedless,
The putting green was weedless,
The college boy was hatless,
The proper diet fatless.

New motor roads are dustless,
The latest steel is rustless,
Our tennis courts are sodless,
Our new religion — godless.

I really like this one :D kinda abstract, sorta mysterious. good job!
