On Procrastination Of Domestic Duties

I see you watching me; yon mottled dust,
Feathery filth, but clean you I must.
Oh how much I do thee loathe;
For all yon shelves do thee clothe.

Thou poorly sight of beggar’s chaff,
Thy unknown home of such rif raf.
From depths of scum thou dost appear;
To cloak all things both far and near.

Enthusiasm thus I lack;
For more than thee I loathe the act.
Such a bore time surely waste,
Yet here I sit in no great haste.

Must I fight thee in a duel?
Surrender now yon grimy fool!
Washed already I have this day,
Foe I’d rather stay that way.

The point alas I cannot see;
Omniscient you’ll always be.
Crawling, creeping, floating down,
Here to haunt me and surround.

So as I sit and curse at thee,
More time passes and I see.
For not my effervescent woe,
I could have finished long ago.

Artist's Description

Comedic and entertaining, I wrote this after my boss had asked me to clean out a disgutsing storage room. Instead I sat and wrote…and well, learned my lesson by the end.
