Bill,
I like your poem. I know what a snake is--my brother is a plumber--! I like your use of the phrase no-drainer! I also think that maybe your poem is a euphemism for deeper and darker things. Lol
Best of luck in the contest, Bill.
Cindy

It's funny I came across your piece. The plumbing in. My bathroom sink and bath wouldn't drain, and I found the relationship between them and my own life to be equally humorous. I can genuinely relate to this. What I learned was: to keep the plumbing working, we got to maintenance it with consistent attention and effort.

Thank you for sharing a great thought

Okay, you have me chuckling. Just one little thing. Pipes is plural, the rest is singular. You might want to change it to just "Pipe." There isn't much worse around the house than a dysfunctional drain.

What a fine and fun poem for the 4 line contest! You've packed volumes in it. Your pipes, snakes and drains came alive here (lol). Great creative imagery, visuals, font and artistic presentation.

Much enjoyed that one, I think it will do very well in the contest.

Lol. Well, I guess it could be the snake that the plumber uses or it could be the snake that lives in the ground. But if those pipes look that tangled I don't think it's possible to snake out. Best wishes in the contest!

    I think the artist meant to represent a heart and tears.

The author's words are engaging, interesting, clear and creative. I pondered on the theme of these words. The artwork is great and goes
well with these words. The poem flows and connects well.
Hope you are doing well....Maria

Hahaha, if anyone here on FanStory can milk a line it's my old pal Bill Schott. I mean, who in the hell else would think of the line to describe a plugged pipe as, "It's a no drainer."? That's funny, Man!

    Thank you, Jay, for the great review. I'm always happy when the fun I have is transferred. Now to call the plumber.

What an unusual subject. Pipes should win you points for creativity. I like the word play with No-drainer. Syllable count is exactly right. This flows together smoothly, too. Interesting artwork. It looks like it could be some form of modern art. judi
