There once were two families with kitchens in shambles,
one family was smart the other one gambled.
Both families decided the kitchens must go,
they did their research and started out slow.
One family choose blue with yellow accents,
the other thought white with stainless made sense.
They purchased new products, no plastic or cheap tin,
let’s do it right the first time, not over again.
Now it was time to hire a GC,
one family saw value, the other his fee.
He is professional, dependable the one family said,
he’s too high, said the other, and went and hired Fred.
Six months have passed since the projects began,
one family eats in their new kitchen, the other from cans.
You see, Fred was much cheaper, how hard could it be,
it only takes a few days on HGTV.
The kitchen’s half done, and that half is all wrong,
the family hired another GC, because Fred is long gone.
I’ll make the story’s moral as simple as I can,
choose the time tested method, not the flash in the pan.
