I can't seem to stop writing poetry or reading poetry. I think it is safe to say I love poetry and I love sharing great poetry with others.
24 lines about the cleaning of my son's room
a week of planning went into this task
on the matter of cleaning ones room
how did you collect such big junk?
Three large loads of trash with some luck
spelunk into a few years of muck
the nastier this room seems to get
if you collect more we will be sunk
your room remains a crime scene
we thought upon a nest of mice
the stinkiest of jobs so far
a pocket sized tornado
nest of solidified sauces
into an ancient burial ground of trash
junk food wrappers
its really obscene
this devilish scene
to scrub and dust each item to sparkle
you just wash and wash to just scrub the dirt
we started scrubbing deep
upon my knees
time to let things air out
proof of lazy lifestyle.

This brought a smile, Jamie. I can relate to a messy kid's room. You described it well.
