A mother’s task list never ends-
her families’ life upon it depends.
With countless lines
of things to do,
One question troubles me…
What’s the point of folding sheets?
They’ll just get wrinkled when we sleep.
T-shirts- I’ll fold them all day long
while I sing a happy song.
But those silly, giant sheets
always claim a great defeat.
The banded corners try my patience
And really seem like such great nonsense.
Out of the closets they often come-
Living room forts are much more fun!
Than pressed and pleated cotton lines
consuming too much precious time.
Perhaps I’ll roll them in a ball-
Then stuff a closet in the hall.
And use those extra fleeting moments
Penning words so life makes sense.
“Maaahhhmmm- can we PLLLEEEEAAAASE make a fort?”
Here, boys, I’ll help.
