Yes I Must Dust!...


(There's a wonderful poem by Rose Milligan called 'Dust If You Must'...(do seek it out)...and one day, my eldest sent it to me after she'd invited me to a social thing and I'd declined 'cos I was busy cleaning. This was my tongue-in-cheek reply to her)


Yes I must dust

To appease the demon

That stresses me out

If I cease the cleanin'


Yes I must dust

'Cos if I want the time

To enjoy life's pleasures

I must first vanquish grime


Yes I must dust

Regardless of weather

'Cos that's what helps me

Keep my shit together


Yes I must dust

So bear in mind, please

You would dust too

If you had OCD's
