Oh shiny and versatile Crescent Wrench

That hangs on my wall, near my work bench.

You have a hole, at one end, for hanging you from;

Your designer was brilliant, he wasn't so dumb.

 

My wrench is chrome plated

And Consumer Reports Rated.

As a Best Bargain Buy,

At $4.95, I gave it a try!

 

It's pinion is tight

And it's rack is just right

For a flawless operation

Along it's graduation.

 

Its grip is secure with a safety-grip coating,

It is handy for the garage or even for boating.

And it is fully guaranteed never to break;

A money-back warranty, for goodness sake.

 

Yes, to see my Crescent Wrench so proudly displayed

Is a tribute to the workers and the product they made.

But when I see it, it almost brings me to tears,

Because I used it just once, in the last twenty years.
