The dishes are never really done and
the dusting, that too needs time plus
you can’t forget to eat again and
call your mother, don’t forget to
go pick up some eggs and milk and
bread, we’re out of bread, and there are
weeds growing in the gutters, got to clean those next and
someone’s gotta snake the drain and we
aren’t made of money, so that someone is –
oh, oh, and you’ve got to read, don’t forget to read
and work, or else we aren’t eating plus
I know you like games, and music, and laughter,
and movies, and all sorts of other things we don’t have time for.
