two sides of the coin

we see the flaws and patiently point them out
this needs to work and that thing needs repair
we stand outside in the swift-warming air
and see they've fixed the gutters and the spout
the job's near done it's almost time to shout
the end's in sight the process almost fair
though at each step it's brought both cry and tear
and other things we could have done without
but now we've got another thing to do
another worry that will our pressures raise
and lead us swiftly to the edge of tears
for each good thing an evil swings in view
there's a dark side to every changing phase
some things become far harder with the years
