Plans for the break?

There’s no place like Home Depot
(Unless you count Lowe’s)
To find the perfect lighting fixture
(Which you won’t know how to install)
Or get the best hanging plant
(That you’ll forget to water)
Maybe pick out some paint for the kitchen
(As if your wife will like your choice)
Buy a big-ass bundle of paper towels
(Why, exactly, do you need so many?)
Find an energy-efficient washing machine
(Your laundry room can’t fit that model)
Just breathe in that fresh-lumber smell
(So outdoors-y, Mr. Big Box Shopper!)

aw fuck it
we know the truth
stop pretending
that you’re gonna
do any home improvements
over Spring Break
