Bickering About The Bathroom - Poem by Aisha Sherazi

There’s scum, filth,
Under the rim,
It has to be cleaned,
It’s looking quite grim.

There’s dirt, grime,
Around the sink,
It has to be wiped,
For it’s causing a stink.

There’s muck, dust,
Near the tub,
The floor isn’t clean,
It needs a good scrub.

But it will get done,
All in good time,
Just give me a chance,
It isn’t a crime.

You are not perfect,
Not perfect at all,
The bed isn’t made,
I said nothing at all.

So give me some time,
Give me some peace,
For the germs in my bathroom,
Are having a feast!

    Aisha, this comes as close to Universal as any poem I've seen. But perhaps that's just me. I am looking for a commercial product which will clean the bathroom - similar to a hand-grenade, but not apt to chip tile or porcelain. Cheers for this one. - Will (Report) Reply

    Who's got time to clean the bathroom when there's poetry to write? Cute poem, Aisha!

    Sounds almost like my house, too, Aisha. If I close my eyes and hold my nose, maybe I can pretend it isn't there, and get some of your peace and quiet...

    Love, Fran xx

    Right up my street this one. I'd be cleaning constantly if it was left to my lot. (10) . Lizzy.x (Report) Reply
