Needed Inspiration

My aunt sent me this great poem, and I just HAD to share it all with you.

Cleaning Poem

I asked the Lord to tell me
Why my house is such a mess
He asked if I’d been ‘computering’,
And I had to answer ‘yes.’

He told me to get off my butt,
And tidy up the house.
And so I started cleaning up…
The smudges off my mouse.

I wiped and shined the topside.
That really did the trick…
I was just admiring my good work.

I didn’t mean to ‘click.’

But click, I did, and oops – I found
A real absorbing site
That I got SO way into it –
I was into it all night.

So nothing’s changed except my mouse.
It’s as shiny as the sun.
I guess my house will stay a mess…..
While I sit here on my bum.

    Many years ago, that same aunt sent me a frig, magnet that proclaimed ‘Ï’m not messy my cupboards just backed up” She is a lady who can laugh at herself and also at ritualistic expectations.
