Get rid of those week-old papers,
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's turned green needs to go,
And remove those odd smelling
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,
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,
cleaning lady to come!
