Rusty

Clipart image of a smiling handyman, or mechanic

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 31 December 2020, galvanized.

After using my shiny new wrench,
I then left it outside in rain on a bench,
What I’d thought galvanised,
Was instead oxidised,
And would never get over the drench.

This can’t just have been me, right?

  1. I remember the first time I have used this word. Seventh grade. We were asked to draw our house & showing it in front of the class right after as we describe its every part.
