The Battled Abode

 

 

Dishes and laundry

Perpetual chores

Household quandary

Of everyday wars

 

Day in and day out

Our footprint sustained

The usage throughout

Our home is disdained

 

Dishes for miles

From meal after meal

Cleaning these piles

A no end ordeal

 

As soon as their cleaned

Time to cook once more

The kitchen’s obscene

We cannot ignore

 

Laundry basket smells

A weeks’ worth of stress

The odor repels

It must be addressed

 

Dirty clothes we face

Now folded and stashed

Everything’s in place

We can rest at last

 

To keep it controlled

You must stay on top

For cleaning gets old

This battle won’t stop
