Washing the Dishes

Updated on April 11, 2016

The problem with cooking our own meals,

many spatulas of stainless steels,

every coffee cup,

breakfast bowls all stacked up,

these dishes have lost their appeal.


A family of five collects dishes,

the sound of the dish rag that swishes,

need a dishwasher,

I keep getting crosser,

top item on my Birthday wishes.



Everyone says to wash as you go

if you don't it can go much to slow,

all I find is I wash,

in dishwater I slosh

as the dish pile it grows and it grows.


A warning to younger generations

put chores on your monthly equations,

sometimes you clean and clean

and never win it seems

especially on special occasions.

      Capturing memories of my childhood standing at the kitchen sink washing dishes. Thanks for this inviting poem.

      I know what you mean about the dishes. We are only two but that only keeps us lazier and soon those dishes seem to pile up on their own.
