Chosen Words

Thursday, August 17, 2017 by The Press in Opinion

Housework! Yuk! Who needs it! It seems it’s always there,

I just can’t get to do it, but I don’t really care.

It’s always staring at me, the fingerprints, the glare

upon those dirty windows, the dust upon the chair.

The furniture is dusty, we all could write our names,

but I’ll clean it tomorrow, today I’ll play some games.

The junk just sits in piles

on tabletops and floors,

Why doesn’t someone pick it up,

there’s clothing by the score.

The closet just sits empty,

‘cause nothings ever in it;
