Wherever there’s dirt she would clean

No filth dared to wallow

In what was to follow

My mind’s now a hollow ravine

I've been told that women's minds are usually cleaner than men's - because they change it more often ;0) (Oh dear;I hope I don't get into trouble te!he!). (.") Very funny verse :)

All the best,

Hurry to the trash, Martin, and you will find,

The little that's left of your once dirty mind.
