Phase 10 : hot tub-to-pond project

Remember "that hot tub" I've spoken of,
showed it getting trimmed, and had plans
to make it a yard pond and own a big catfish?

With shrieks and screams beyond imagination,
the beast took one last yelp and imploded into a
nine-piece, portable, expandable hot tub puzzle!
(duct tape and extension planks not included)

Actually, it took a sawzall, 1 crowbar, 3 pipe
wrenches, 2 extension cords, 1 golf ball, 2 spade
bits, 1 beer, 2 hours, my dog, Barley, and
twenty-seven saw blades. What the hey?!
It will fit in the van for a trip to landfill...

Are not you aware of of the old saying spoken by a very wise man, "the cost of destruction is twice the cost of construction". I really do hope that you had a LA City permit for the destruction. Any thought to the effect it will have on our environment during the thousands of years that it will now lay in sanitation depositories. I have often wonder how a place that stock piles dirty diapers and millions of other objectionable objects and smells terrible could be called a "sanitary landfill". Did you give it any thought to just "burning it in place"? Then it is gone forever.

If you feel the incessant urge,
and your tongue is sharp and quick,
leave a worthless thought for me
whether cool, or fun, or sick.
