A HOUSEWIFE'S LAMENT


 


I've washed too many pairs of dirty hands.


And cleaned a zillion pots and pans.


 


I've removed spots from the brand new carpet,


And made endless trips to the supermarket.


 


I've tripped scores of times on a toy in the hall,


And scrubbed a hundred marks from the ivory wall.


 


Now I am  ready to run or fly


To a land where pants are always dry.


 


Where our spouses don't come home and say,


"What, darling, did you do today?"

This strikes me as a quintessential foundation for a poem in the round.
Very good. Vicky
