When I saw this picture I wanted to cry . . .
Once upon a time in a former life
of carefree kids and a happy wife
Rinsing dishes by the sink
the sound of the glasses’ clink
to the spoon, the fork and the knife.
Set it and forget it as you sit yourself down
Watch some Oprah, Watch some Phil or just go to town.
Next thing you know those dishes are done
You didn’t even notice. You were having some fun.
These days of dish pan hands have got your spirits way down.
Ladies of Jordan I am sharing your pain
My hands used to be soft and I’m not just being vain
Dishwater if you’re lucky is at best warm
Get your dishes done quick before the fruit flies swarm
Enjoy the kitchen while it’s clean and it’s time to start again.
No dishwasher for you and you gotta do the dishes
The food was delightful, it was more than delicious
Time for coffee, time for tea
What about time for ME!
It’s about time to end this cycle so vicious!
