Housework Nightmare

By Bud Lemire

The dishes are waiting, to be washed in the sink
It's such a hot day, so I'll sit and have a drink
A rootbeer float, hits the spot just right
The floors need sweeping, what a sorry sight

I have a lot of clutter, but that's just me
So many things everywhere, it's easy to see
Dust seems to collect, in so many places
On top it all settles, in most of the cases

Inside the refrigerator, things have spilled
And the garbage can, is way over filled
The shower is dirty, all over the floor
The toilet needs cleaning, and so much more

The laundry basket, is piled up with clothes
A disgusting smell, comes to my nose
I tell you, it's a Housework Nightmare
Another sip of my rootbeer float, as I sit and stare

Author Note:

I'm sure I'm not the only one who has had a Housework
Nightmare. I always find it easier, when I do one little
job at a time. That way it is much easier and you do a
much better job, and it still gets clean. Damn! That
Rootbeer Float sounds good right now.
