I Hate Housework

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “clean/dirty.” Use one, use both, use ’em any way you like. Enjoy!


The mop stares back at me
Accusing strings vibrating
Feeling abandoned to the cold
As I find better things to do
A clean house sought after
The elbow grease to accomplish
Spent on writing and reading
The time run rapidly away
Until guests are expected
Avoidance of this task
No longer an option
For fear of the truth come out
Housework, my least favoured job
Dodged and delayed at every turn
But now I’m mopping at midnight
So that you’ll never know
Of my filthy dirty floors
And my untidy ways
That will NOT meet you at the door
