Cleaning: A Poetry Post

Today I'm bringing inspiration from a writing workshop I went to the other day. We had to list lots of things, like things we did every day, things we hated, all that stuff. I can't remember which list 'cleaning' fell on - it could have been either of the ones I've mentioned, but here is my poem on the subject.

If you like it, please feel free to share.


I'm not leaning toward cleaning.
Not predisposed to tidy clothes.
I'm not inclined to wax sublime.
There is no room I would vacuum.
I've no desire to scrub with wire.
I wouldn't wish to wash a dish.
As for laundry, it just bores me.
Toward cleaning I'm not leaning.
