Oh carpet on the floor
What’s with all the crumbs?
I vacuumed only last week

Those walls now look quite shabby
But they were fine not long ago

There really is too much to do
And none of it is fun
And as soon as I have finished
It all needs to be redone

Better not to start at all
And leave things in a mess
I’d rather live in squalor
It brings so much less stress
