Oh how distracted a mind can be,
When the household is calling
“Please, please tidy me?”
The dishes need stacking,
Books and shoes litter the floor
But creative juices hedge me, “write now”
…..housework’s a bore
The laundry heaps tall on the couch
Are those wrinkles from age?
The odiferous cloud from the kitchen
Will require both Lysol and smudging of sage
I do love my house and it deserves more love
But….My writing lasts forever
unlike any scouring
Requiring a glove!
