I had to wash the dishes

My list of chores said yesterday.

It's not a thing I like to do

So I looked for the easiest way.

Use the dog, the hose, my socks

I could lick them clean myself.

My choices nearly endless are

Just put them dirty on the shelf.

The least amount of work, I found

Less time, less thought, less sweat.

The toilet swirls, swishes, and drains

They'll be proud of me, I'll bet.


Once again I need to sincerely apologize and pray that YOUR kids never do this.

Like I've said before, these poems just sort of come to me, so I can kind of claim some flimsy immunity from anything your kids may or may not do.
