Cleaning Frenzy

This is just to say

I vacuumed

the crud

off your rug

I am a bit


and you are

obviously not

Forgive me

your room is

nice and tidy

so peaceful.

    I know what poem you mentored your poem after! Great job with the structure of yours. I can hear the humor and the love in this piece. (How do you really feel about having to vacuum up the crud?) Nice poem-slice!

    Love this! It reminds me so much of my crud-lovin’ son! Enjoy the peace while it lasts.

    Amen! So fun and I could memorize and recite to my son after he gets back from camp. If I were brave enough to attempt and wanted to waste my time in there. 🙂 Nicely done!

    and you are/
    obviously not

    make me smile.
