Dirty Clothes

A washing machine is useful
My shirts need all the help they can get

I get them dirty easily
Machine must work overtime to clean

I hope to keep my shirts spotless
Likely I’ll need the washing machine

Russell Sivey

    If your machine is not working, then get all the quarters you can find and go to the nearest laundromat. That's what my brother has to do since his washing machine broke down. This is a nice set of crystallines, Russell.
