We must laugh
When yet another dust ball is discovered
Hiding in the bookcase near the bed.
I ponder on the process which produced it
As I sit here gobbling up a large boiled egg.
When yet another stain upon the carpet
Cannot be removed by water,work or foam.
I wonder if I'm cut out for housework.
This is certainly not a human's Ideal Home.
But let me not waste time on fussy cleaning.
Life is far more precious than is dirt.
I'll change my dress and put on perfume.
And take a two hour course in how to flirt.
For life can be so painful we must laugh.
Above all, never mention Sylvia Plath
