An illustrated ode to doing the dishes......Ah the flights of fantasy that you drift off into when doing the washing up......
Up on the worktop, piled up high
A mountain of dishes reaching to the sky.
I’ve left it too long, for over a week,
And now there’s no clean dishes off which to eat.
So now it’s time for a final last drink,
before I take the plunge and tackle the sink.
Did I create all this, did I really cook this much?
Or did a gang of people invite themselves to lunch?
So I pour the water, and squirt the liquid in,
and throw the strange moldy things into the bin.
The gunge has welded itself to the plates
Is it permanently fixed, have I left it too late?
There’s last week’s stew still in the pot
And a salad now evolving into who knows what.
My coffee cup is slowly becoming white,
as I scrub it clean with all my might
My sleeves are damp from all the suds,
and there’s horrible yucky water in both my gloves.
The water has turned a murky grey.
This is a bad way to start the day
I’ve almost finished, I’ve almost won,
there’s just one pot left to be done.
But it’s the pot from hell, the one I let burn
I should have let it soak when will I learn?
For fixed to the bottom is a thick black layer
that refuses to budge despite my prayer.
I scrape away but the gunk is really think,
It seems only a laser beam would do the trick
But at last I’ve finished I’ve done my time,
and everything is shiny and free of grime.
The pot bottom now has a real shine.
as I celebrate my feat with a glass of wine
Maybe next time, I’ll strike a deal -
for my friends to do dishes in return for a meal.
A dish washing machine I may yet buy,
or find myself a hunky dishwashing guy!
