Protest day: I went down to the repair shop

I went down to the repair shop
With it wrapped up in cotton wool
I put it on the table
I said here’s what I want you to do
I want you to repair
I want you to mend my broken heart
I’ll pay anything you want
Just repair my broken heart

The repairman said
Don’t you understand
There are things we can mend and things we can’t
You’ve come to the wrong place
You must do an about-face
And take your broken heart
Back out of this place

Well I said
You’ve got a hammer
To hammer it into shape
And you’ve got the hinges
To put it back in place
And you’ve got the knife
To pare away the pain
So please don’t reject me
Or send me back into the rain

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.

  1. This is beautiful. Also reminds me of a comic strip, which had a heart mechanic who used to mend broken hearts. But he did that by putting a piece of his own.
    Ah,the internet 😍🙌
