Spring Cleaning: A Poem

Updated on March 30, 2012
What a mess!
What a mess! | Source

She looked around at all the clutter

bottles, cups, and maybe some butter

magazines here and newspapers there

even a map to the 1982 World's Fair!

She sighed and took a deep dusty breath

coughed and gagged, saw visions of her death!

The headlines read: 'Twas Clutter That Killed Her'

'Did Dead Girl Ever Clean Her House? No Sir!'

Photos would be an embarrassment even under ground

Negative Nellies would certainly pass them around!

"No, I must do something about this today!"

From outside the clutter, someone heard her say.

It's not safe and probably most of it is trash

except for the leaning tower of books that looks about to crash!

She didn't get the memo that spring cleaning takes place in Spring

Her brain must be buried underneath that hairy, moldy thing!

I think it was a sandwich.

      I know you had fun with this one. I certainly had fun reading it. Cleaning is never fun, but when we allow it to get even a little our of control it is overwhelming. Now when I do my spring cleaning I will be remembering this hub and I know a smile will come.

      Voted up and very funny.

      Voted up and funny. You should see my kitchen and I have over 20 windows to wash because we have old fashioned double windows. lol Spring cleaning ought to be a ball. At least you gave me a laugh before I begin.
