Laundry (A Poem)

Updated on September 20, 2012

I spend enough time doing laundry, that I've managed to make up a poem about it. If you hate laundry like I do then I think you will enjoy this poem!!


I really do hate laundry

I do it every day

But no matter how many loads I do

It never goes away

Just when the piles start shrinking

My daughter cleans her room

And the piles are sky high again,

Now smelling of teen perfume.

My son thinks he needs to change his underwear

Whenever he goes poo

And everyone uses a new towel when they shower

Sometimes even two!

Laundry, laundry, laundry

I wish you’d go away

I’d rather walk around naked

Than do it every day

      Thanks everyone! I actually composed this poem in my head while doing a load of laundry! I did eight loads yesterday and I'm still not caught up! Oh, the bane of my existence! :)

      Ha ha - this is really cute. As I am currently in the middle of laundry right now this really hit home! Now - I will tell you though - buying new socks will not get rid of the old socks at home. Man - did I learn that lesson. Now I suck it up and fold them instead. Of course, I have enough socks to change them everyday for at least 6 months! ;)
