Washing the Dishes

The dishes lay there –

left to languish –

frustrated from their purpose.

 

Left there in the sink –

disrespected –

the stainless steel bowl besmirched.

 

Sudsing up is good –

reincarnates –

they so want to be useful.

 

Then too, soiled is good –

real fulfilling –

unsullied is not service.

 

Cleaning is for them-

Redemption –

as for me it is Practice.

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
