The Cleaning Machine (limerick)

Updated on June 19, 2013

My wife is a cleaning machine

Wherever there’s dirt she would clean

No filth dared to wallow

In what was to follow

My mind’s now a hollow ravine

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

      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,
