Thoughts While Sweeping the Kitchen (After Taking Out the Trash)

I said I was bored.
I got chored.
Why can’t I ever just be ignored?

Those of whom you are writing would prefer some other plane. Enough said, for sure!

I particularly love this because I have a house full at the moment :) Happy New Year Greg!

Very nice. Much more poetical than this one from those early teenage jobs, "if you have time to lean, you have time to clean."

I love this kind of poetry. Makes me think of "If I was in Charge of the World, and Other Worries" by Judith Voirst.
