Antiques

Please don't know this aging antique desk
It was not chosen with idle foolishness
The finish is no longer new, but check out the grain
Oh sure, at first it may look kind of plain.
These dents, they give it character, you see?
It works better than ever, a little bit like me.

When we were new, the parts would bind, get tight
But a little wear relieves the constant fight.
Just examine our purpose and intent
To our completion, a lot of hours were spent.
The Maker displays superior design
To ignore everyone's value would make us blind.
