    Cleaning Poem

    I asked the Lord to tell me
    Why my house is such a mess.
    He asked if I'd been 'computering',
    And I had to answer "yes."

    He told me to get off my fanny
    And tidy up the house.
    And so I started cleaning up...
    The smudges off my mouse.

    I wiped and shined the topside.
    That really did the trick...
    I was just admiring my work..
    I didn't mean to 'click.'

    But click, I did, and oops I found
    A real absorbing site
    That I got SO way into.
    I was into it all night.<<Sigh>>

    Nothing's changed except my mouse
    It's very, very shiny.
    I guess my house will stay a mess...
    While I sit here on my hiney.

    I think cleaning is highly over rated and, from what I can see, can be adictive (seems like people who do, do it all the time) therefore I have been avoiding it for about 20 years now.

    Oh I am sorry , great poem , made me smile

    One of my mother's favorite sayings is: "No one ever lay on their death bed and thought to themselves, 'I wish I had kept my house cleaner'".
