A Dirty Room

Boy was my room a mess!
It'll be considered the best
for a rats' nest.  
I look under the bed,
I find stains that were 
blue, green, and red.
Personally, I'm scared to dread
to know what has stained under
my bed! 
I look to the trash bucket,
it overfills with all sorts
of muck in it 
where the plastic been has
been stuck to it.
I opened the dresser drawer,
an explosion of socks and
underwear hit the floor.
And past, old love letters 
and belts and hats and more
have exploded out to the floor.
My vanity is trashed.
My chair is smashed
And each time I go for a sit,
I fall on my toosh and be crashed.
I've got dirty dishes everywhere,
with extra food for bugs to spare.
It makes a smell of quite despair
that makes us plug our noses in the air.

Sometimes though, instead cleaning
an hour a day
I find it all worth it
to spend four weeks to par-tay,
and only one weekend to clean the pit ;)

    Brittany, I can reflect on your joy of par-tay, I remember when I too harvested great joy from such feelings....am unable to now, but have found other pursuits to satisfy, good write, Jim

    Hmm, I am sticking my fingers in my nose while reading this (laughs) . I love this, it’s amazingly creative. I love the flow of rhymes and words.. You are such a great poet
