My mailbox problem


by zlp22

I don't believe this
What don't you believe?
Fourteen years
Of what?
Fourteen years
I have had
The same mailbox
So what?
Now I got a note
From the post office
That my mailbox
Is three inches too short
Yes, and if I don't fix it
In ten days
No mail will be delivered
Are you going to fix it?
I have to
After fourteen years
There is a problem
Will you he!p me raise it up?
No, I have my own to fix
My note says it's three inches to high.
