alright
thatís it
there is only soooo much mess
a person can take
we are going
to
ORGANIZE
we are going to attack each room
like
weíre moving
like GOD is coming for dinner
we
are going to put in a yard
get that fountain in the courtyard
we
are going to paint the house
clean the gutters
power wash the roof
power wash the patios
no weed will evade our
hacking hoes
we
are going to act like
CIVILIZED
people
we are going to LIVE like
NORMAL
people
this digging for socks is making me crazy
this constant never any clean towels
is ridiculous
THAT IS IT
IíVE HAD IT
buckle down and get to it
all of us
DDAY
is here
the bomb is dropped
every window is going to shine
every carpet is going to sparkle
every cobweb is hereby
BANISHED
not one dust particle or dog hair
is allowed
EVERY SINGLE ARTICLE OF CLOTHING
that hasnít seen a body in three months
is GONE
I tell you GONE
toys what toys there are NO toys
all electronic devices with no backs
are history
Pictures are coming out of boxes
and will be made viewable
in real chronological fashion
all paper work of any kind
including all of my scribblings
WILL BE gone through shredded or stored
in a proper retrievable fashion
every inch of tile will be HAND scrubbed
every inch of kitchen cabinetry will be
scrubbed and polished
as well as organized so that pans will not
break toes ever ever again
every closet will look as though
a professional organizer is patting their checkbook
I AM GOING TO HANG PICTURES
IN THE HALL like I always intended to do
stark raving mad
at mess
is me
stark raving mad
that this has come to this
I am
I HAVE SPOKEN
MY WILL BE DONE
amen


or
maybe
not

oink
oink

Holy Hannah, this sounds just like my house! I'm so glad to find I'm not alone in the universe after all! Now, send help, my mother is coming over for 5 minutes, and I need to call in the S.W.A.T. cleaners!
WELL DONE!

~fountain in the courtyard~ are we in the presence of royalty
I have heard of such things
