A Visit from My Housekeeper

   Her I am 
sitting writing a
While my housekeeper 
  is bury cleaning 
my apartment
   I feel a little guilty 
 She is working hard 
while I am just 
   moving a pen 
along a piece of 
Still poetry 
    is listed as an 
occupation in the Occupational Outlook Handbook 
So I guess I am working, too
   In September I return to work as a
college assistant 
   Devoting the rest of my time to 
the New York Giants, poetry and looking for love

    Great poem. Of course it's work. We're not lazy like those heavy construction guys.

    ha ha Matt, my friend... You and your giants will do awesomely this year. Even though they beat my cowboys, utterly... gurrr... :) Well, pushing your pen is hard work.. I bet it is easier to clean a house than to write a poem... LOL..Love Linda
