Scrubbing Toilets

An ergonomic chair
and time to read next year’s
budget, she bitches about
cutbacks while
She Works Hard for the Money
is piped in from some
easy-listening loop
of unknown origin.

I imagine the bathrooms here
are clean, too.

  2. And somehow, this one is quite mysterious to me.

    Perhaps I should go clean the bathroom...

  3. Thank you again, Darren. Just a little sad but true story.

    Patrice - The best I can is that it's about irony and perspective. (But feel free to come over and clean my bathroom. ;-))

  4. I love that you can write a poem like this and get away with it. It's biting, and I like that!

    Darren loves bathroom poems. He loves to write them. He loves to read them.
