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!
