Not so great poem

Food shampoo, applesauce lotion
constant noise, constant motion

dirt in the bathtub, draining in swirls
I'm checking those bellybuttons for pearls!

a dinning room carpet that always goes crunch
remnants from breakfast, left-overs from lunch

cooking for armies, only 5 for dinner
you know mac n' cheese is always a winner!

someday: tidy kitchen, healthy dinner, empty table
and sad little me, eating dinner watching cable.

Jacquelyn,

I don't know if it's because I love you so much, or if it's because I love the kids you write about so much, but I like your poems much better than Robert Frost's!

Hey!

If we end up working together, my days will certainly be numbered. There's only so much the Lord will allow me to endure...
