An Ode to Spring Cleaning
I have really been a’ meanin’
To begin some fresh Spring cleanin’
But there’s always somethin’ else I’d rather do.
Cause the windows, they’re appalling!
Kitchen walls, splattered with a sticky goo!
And my heart is really racin’–
Cobwebs filling all the corners of each room.
Grimy bathtubs, it’s not purty–
Where’s the mop? Grab a rag! I need the broom!
Stinky socks build laundry mountains
Mile-long list of things to do, I think I’m drowning!
Who needs it worse? The dog by far!
Sees the soap and runs away, so know I’m frowning.
A frenzied mother’s sweet reward!
Start the vacuum ’cause the carpet is repulsive.
Cause the house is still a’ calling,
Oh, I wish I were obsessive or compulsive.
From my blog, just for the day.
If I’m ever going to whittle through my list.
I’ll probably write a post so sappy.
Posting pictures, if it’s clean, I can’t resist!

Karisma and Kids is hosting a Spring cleaning poetry competition, and I couldn’t resist! Once I started, can you tell how much FUN I had with this? I might not win her contest, but no worries–this time, it was pure delight to try :). She’s still looking for submissions, why don’t YOU give it a go??
