Dirty Laundry

Everybody has it--dirty laundry,
ring around the collar, shirts starched for a dollar.
Who's going to take me to the cleaners?
Everybody has it--dirty laundry,
ring around the collar, shirts starched for a dollar.
I hear gangsters are offering a fortune.
Who's going to take me to the cleaners?
Everybody has it--dirty laundry,
ring around the collar, shirts starched for a dollar.
Billionaires have become role models.
I hear gangsters are offering a fortune.
Who's going to take me to the cleaners?
Everybody has it--dirty laundry,
ring around the collar, shirts starched for a dollar.
Wonder how they scrub, those folks pristine?
Billionaires have become role models.
I hear gangsters are offering a fortune.
Who's going to take me to the cleaners?
Everybody has it--dirty laundry,
ring around the collar, shirts starched for a dollar.
If nobody looked, we'd need no clothes, laundry.
Wonder how they scrub, those folks pristine?
Billionaires have become role models.
I hear gangster are offering a fortune.
Who's going to take me to the cleaners?
It must be contagious--dirty laundry.
Everybody has IT ... that's the quandry.

QUANDRY is a common misspelling of QUANDARY. Plural: Quandaries.
In poetic composition one can use the apostrophe in quandry, “QUAND’RY”. This word means a state of uncertainty or perplexity. Therefore it is a dilemma, and or predicament.
Information sources: The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language: Fourth Edition. 2000 and Wikipedia, the Free Encyclopedia.

A remarkable symbolism, subject dealt and imagery in "Dirty Laundry" flow to mingle art and knowledge in a poetic banquet.

In admiration,

Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU
