Better the devil you know!
Thanks for the link, it was delightful!

I've turned wrenches for work and for play,
From when I was young 'til this very day.
I pushed and I tugged and practiced my art,
But everything eventually falls apart!
To some this is sad and leaves them dismayed,
To me it just meant that I would get paid.
And so goes the point of my little thesis,
It's a good thing to some that stuff falls to pieces!
As time fades paint
and wrinkles grace faces,
Things are soon gone with barest of traces.
Old stuff and Grampas move out of the way,
The new and the young must have their day!
It may seem to some a bit unfair,
That all things succumb to wear and to tear.
But a promise was said and the sacrifice paid,
from He who was Maker to him who was made!
