Ode to My Sump Pump

We’ve traveled far down many a mucky road
You’ve been there for me, dear, carrying the heavy load
Step by step, hand in hand, for better, for worse
We often sing the chorus, forget to sing the verse

Oft I’ve wondered on our journeys near and far
Sump, dear pump, how did you get that scar?
You work so hard, your ever frequent pumping
Sucking water from the sump and ever dumping

Your labor continues through the deepest night
The rains, the showers, the streaming, the sight
Of water in my basement, you know my darkest fright
I love your ever vigilant care, oh sump pump hold me tight.

    I deeply understand your ode to our pump. It’s triumphant drone throughout the night is comforting. Oh wonderful water vigilantie, protect us.

    Well, I must say that’s a first for me. Wonder if anyone else has ever penned an ode to their sump pump….! šŸ˜‰
