CLEANING DAY


CLEANING DAY
 



 
Get rid of those week-old papers,
Neaten-up the magazines,
Place the books upright in the book case,
Throw out the plants that aren't green..
 
Straighten the towels in the bathroom,
Pick up the shoes on the floor,
Get the slippers out from under the bed,
Close all of the closet doors.
 
Brush the cat hair from the couch and the chair,
Fluff up the pillows a bit,
Reverse the pads on the breakfast bar stools,
Tie them so they can't slip.
 
Get rid of the spoiled food in the fridge,
That cheese that's turned green needs to go,
And remove those odd smelling hotdogs,
Before that strange fungus grows.
 
Hide the T V remote where it's safe,
Tuck the bills out of sight in a drawer,
Make sure the cat is wearing her tags,
In case she gets out the door.
 
Make mental notes as to where things sit,
And which items belong in what space,
Concentrate on ORGANIZATION,
Remember, each thing has a place.
 
Now, let's see - what else is left?
I'm exhausted, but I'm done,
And now the house is clean enough,
For the cleaning lady to come!
