A Poem about Washing: A Humorous One
My wife often says I am like a writing machine
and she'd like me better as dish washing one
what she doesn't know, I wash people clean
sometimes out of love, other times for fun.
That washing may look like dragging through mud
even needless as they are brainwashed so well
while nothing could wash others short of flood
though a cold shower might remove spell.
Those politicizing ones, like money launderers
washing dirty deals off their sinning champs
at times resembling blinded wanderers
washing still leaving them damp.
Washington sounds like a big washing place
but a murder capital including murder of truth
with no detergent that might wash every face
and all honest politicians fitting in phone booth.
Those two Georges got into a serious lengthy fight
Washington won --- the king retreated to his queen
George liked cleanliness so he painted House white
well, let all the history tell how long it remained clean.
I would write some more but my dishes call
as my wife does cooking, I wash dishes after
and our washing machine is not needed after all
so I can keep writing -- for a clean fun and laughter.
