A Lazy House... - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

Mommy's having her
the fingers of the right hand
hang in air
to dry the red paint
on the nails

she is very sleepy
the housemaid is feeding the
baby with
bottled milk
her diaper is wet
and stinking

Aunt is having Facebook on her notebook
giggling to her chatmates'
latest gossip in town
Jinky is pregnant to an
undisclosed gambler

breakfast consists of
chinese noodles and
fried egg
you an either have steamed rice
or congee
you have to boil your own

the floors are not mopped yet
and it is about 10 o'clock in the morning
of a supposedly manic
Daddy is still asleep
still on a hangover on last night's
drinking spree with
fellow drunkards

Outside the dogs wait beside
the door
for their missing beef bones
The big gray cat sits on the
beam of the house looking at all of them
seemingly pondering but nothing
to meow meow...
