Blue Monday: Hammer

A worker wields a hammer in this detail from a mural, Prescott Public Library, Prescott, Arizona.

The hammer comes down with a crash!
Watch out, worker, and do not smash
Your fingers or toes,
For everyone knows
You can’t buy replacements with cash.

  1. Interesting art.
    Thank you for hosting.

  2. So true. Some things money can’t buy.

  3. A good image for Blue Monday.

  4. It would make me blue
    to bang my fingers too hard
    that much is true
    but for men there is a part
    that shouldn’t be harmed
    it cannot be mended with glue

  5. Such a stellar closing line to this one! ❤️

  6. Well, if they can create a robot to do your job, you just might be displaced.

  7. Nice combination of mural art and poetry.

  8. Margaret Elizabeth Bednar

    …oh, that is true! Nice rhyme.

  9. Normally childhood does feature such instances in the developing years. Luckily I watched other boys make mistakes so brain absorbed that information. Brothers are not safe to play with, once mine jumped on me and broke my wrist. When married I told my wife I wanted all girls but she decided on a boy first then followed with two the girls to placate me!

  10. There are things money cannot buy.

  11. Money can’t buy everything 🙂 Nice!


    I feel a mix of wanting to laugh or say “OW!”

  13. Indeed! No arguing with that.

  14. Some truths can’t be soften, avoided, or changed. And, oh, how they hurt when we forget the facts.
