Dirt

Yet another poem inspired by my circumstances.

Dirt it has an evil soil

Dirt it really make you toil

Vacuum sweep and wipe it out

Pour hot water from a spout

Add some dish soap and it’s gone

Put it out onto the lawn

Comes in from your boots and shoes

Inside outside you must choose

Creeps up on the window sill

Full of germs that make you ill

Clogs the vacuum’s filter bad

Makes you wish you never had

Way too much dirt comes in here

Wipe those boots off will you dear?

    1. The city is so much filthier and grimier. I just wanted to have some fun with it. Hell, I make art out of dirt. If you can’t beat ’em join ’em!

      1. Yes, I remember reading your blog about those balls of dirt.
        You’d think cities would be cleaner, but the reality of it… they aren’t.

      2. BTW I don’t see dirt as being full of germs. I probably consume about a teaspoon a day 🙂 along with my food. It just rhymed.

      3. Oh we don’t consider dirt as being “dirty” (as in germy) either. LoL
        As a matter of fact, we hate the overuse of antibiotic soap, “that” leads to sickness.

      4. I agree. I once worked for a couple that were completely anal about germs. They boiled every single bottle of milk even when they had a baby. That baby ended up with severe allergies.

      5. And our garden that grew our lovely veggies is dirt. I DIG in it all of the time. Hmmm. Maybe I should write a second version. You have inspired me Kenneth.
