Horace Hardaker of Hardaker’s Hardware (Villanelle)

 

He’s a shopkeeper most extraordinaire

Purveyor of offcuts of wood,

He’s Horace Hardaker, of Hardaker’s Hardware

 

If you’re after quality, you don’t want to go there

He only sells cheap tack and crud

He’s a shopkeeper most extraordinaire

 

His archaic till came from an antiques fair  

He’s an old stick in the mud

He’s Horace Hardaker, of Hardaker’s Hardware

 

Cold hands and cold heart, a touch of the frigidaire

Ice runs through his veins and his blood

He’s a shopkeeper most extraordinaire

 

Timewasters are cut down, with a one glass-eyed death stare

He’s no time for chewing the cud

He’s Horace Hardaker, of Hardaker’s Hardware

 

The tight sod, he’s only a multi-millionaire

But his money will do him no good

He’s a shopkeeper most extraordinaire

He’s Horace Hardaker, of Hadaker’s Hardware
