when the only tool you have is a hammer, everything starts to look like a nail

after nearly 50 years as a builder
i found i was having trouble finding work
due to the fact that i could only work
on floors

it took time to find hammers
that were made for right and left walls
and ceilings too

since i got them all now
i can work on most jobs
and get asked to do work
others with only one or two hammers
can’t do

a complete set is really
a big plus

I guess I would have to agree Patron, one does need a complete set.

But what about all the mis-matched nails? some of them have the head on the wrong end!
