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?"
