Tidying Up - Poem by Debora Short

Tidying
World
Anxiety
A most
Sweeping task
Is nearly as
Difficult
As my
Vain attempts
To rid my
White-tiled
Kitchen floor
Of dog fur

    Sweet Debora Short; it is a nice poem; I agree with you that itis difficult task to make the world clean; but we should not feel ourselves disgusted. We should pick up the thorns of our own share, and drag the load that we can drag. read my poetry also and comment on a dfew poems.
