The Kitchen Sink
By: Wayne Brown
There’s nothing to write about; nothing of which I think
So, I realize it’s come the time to write of the kitchen sink
Yes, that boring old apparatus on the counter in the kitchen
To see if can write a poem about it, well I’m just a itchin’!
It sits out in the kitchen within the counter it is restrained
It normally has a water spigot; the newer one two drains
The color choices run the gambit; range from pink to white
Sinks adds to the décor while being a functional delight
Now in case you are confused by what I write about
It’s the porcelain thing in the counter with a water spout
We use it to wash vegetables and sometimes clean a dish
It has a thousand uses; almost anything you wish
Now some might say oh no! He would not write of that
An obviously boring subject; not interesting one tat
But why not write about it and tell you what I think?
Why not a little poem about the old kitchen sink?
Look at that smooth finish cool finish made of porcelain
Touch the rounded corners; put your fingers in the drain
Reach up and turn on the tap and let that cold water run
We’re playin’ with the kitchen sink, oh ain’t lotsa fun!
Some have two compartments for a wash and a rinse
Each one has its own drain; that makes a lot of sense
Wash your fruits and vegetables; shampoo your hair
Rinse some nylon hose or soak some dainty little wear
It sits out in that counter for days now without flaw
It can do most any job; beats anything you’ve saw
Yet we take it for granted; pass it by without a wink
That very much unappreciated all-purpose kitchen sink
The kitchen sink is quite versatile; a damn fine invention
It’ll handle most any job and it’s just the right dimension
Look all about your life; tell me what you really think
What do you own that can compete with that kitchen sink?
