Fixing a tire with a friend is better
One is the fixer, the other the tire-setter.
If you do it alone, it’s hard and boring,
With a good friend you won’t be snoring:
“You hold the tire and I’ll unscrew
Everything we need to remove and glue.
Whoops, you almost dropped it just now,
Please don’t let loose until I allow.
The valve is loose, let’s unmount the tire,
With our fingers it can’t misfire.
No! With a screwdriver you’ll make it flat!
Haven’t you learned not to do it like that?
Please be careful, and do as I say,
It’s over very soon if we do it my way.
No, you don’t work for me, I know,
I’m glad you don’t with that dumb show.
Now keep it still while I glue it shut
And give me the patch, don’t just sit on your butt!
Oh, sure! You can just get mad and leave
Like you do every time, don’t you, Steve?”
I guess I’ll finish this thing on my own,
And do it well like I am well-known.
Working alone is better after all,
There’s no one else there to always drop the ball.
