A Couplet for my Emmy by da-AL

My Emmy was tarnished and broken.
Now that she’s varnished, she’s smokin’!

Isn’t she gorgeous?

My old statuette broke. Plus she was chipped and tarnished. My husband suggested I get her fixed for the sake of having a nice picture taken with her for my book release. Unfortunately, all the trophy repair people I contacted said she was made of pot metal, which is apparently beyond the scope of welding and gluing.

Getting this new one (okay, she’s more than merely the couplet’s ‘varnished’) entailed turning in the original, along with paying a pretty sum.

If only the original statuette had come so extravagantly boxed, she might never have gotten damaged.

Now I’m afraid to touch this new glittery one, certainly not without the little piece of lintless cloth that she arrived with. I’m also worried about setting her out on a bookshelf — what if she gets knocked over the way her predecessor suffered?
