A Faucet Run A'Mock - Poem by Michael Gale

Crimson blue underwear hanging from the line...
Tea kettles a'fired hot above the boilin' stove.

Sugar crumb'd on the table just-a set in spil'led water...
This puddled liquid lies so still and languildly cold.

Cock roaches battle army-ants for the syrup'ed coated sea...
A missing person, done departed from this runny top-Forever due,
is of one wanted missing mop.

An over flowing sink filled with dirty dishes...
Reminds one of a most wanted housekeeper, Unwisely left
unattended-will come the rushing waters from one let go of faucet.

What did happen to this scene-An unkept mess that did so happen.

A mess so bad would have to be cleaned up...
A broken dish or a chipped up cup.

    An everyday mess...leading to a tidily creative poem. We don't need to discuss giants to consider great themes; a faucet will do quite nicely :) A deserved 10 from me too!
    Best wishes, and a very happy New Year to you and yours.
