Treading Water

empty rubbish

scrub the dishes

mow the lawns

and cut the hedges

cook some prawns

cos they’re delicious

rites performed

to cleanse the kitchen

clean the mould

from backs of fridges

bugs are born

in nooks and niches

Hoover up

the bits ‘n pieces

glue the things

smashed up by nieces

can’t stop yawning

glue my eyelids


these jar and pie lids

in the bin

or in recycling

check the chart

if you’re in doubt

they fine you

chucking wrong things out


trapped in Hell

stuck on board

a carousel

treading water

waging war

hordes of boring

chores and more …
