Little green sticker
How you bring me joy
Few will understand
Only a contractor really can

Anticipation, waiting for the word
Did the inspection pass
Knowing that it should
But unable to move forward
Until it’s official

Little green sticker
After all these years
You haven’t lost your hold
You keep me on my toes

Thousands of inspections
It should be rote by now
Still eagerly I wait
Certain but not sure
What the results will be

Little green sticker
Today you were good to me
But there’s always the next time
There’s always wait and see

E.A. Fussell
