House of mine, neglected and poor,
I’m happy you’re clean and fresh.
Your floors, they weary me
Until I must confess
To brushing my feet off before getting in bed.
Daily work, why are you so daily?
What is it about you that makes us groan?
There is no excuse for us to be so lazy.
So, I pull those boot straps up, yet again,
And grab cleaning cloths and gloves
And vow to never let it go again.
We will pick up every day!
Never under the bed will we shove!
I will make a chore chart!
I won’t be alone in this foray.
The children sigh and tsk tsk.
Summer is almost here, better hurry
I run up and and down the hall
Cleaning inside and out in a scurry.
I know all too well,
This motivation will pass…sooner than later
I will ride it like a swell.
Come over quick….before it all goes to….taters.
