“GET CLEAN; FEEL GREAT!?” a poem Sept. 24, 2018 (Moon Day)
What’s-all-this-talk-about DOOM & GLOOM?
Come-on, Baby! Just clean your room!
The spider webs and dust abound;
Perhaps “in-your-soul” they’re also found!
SO, TURN THIS BLOODY THING AROUND:
Just CLEAN YOUR ROOM;
I hear a sound! 🙂
(It) Must be a dang, alien cockroach, who’s scurrying there!
Just CLEAN YOUR ROOM – sweep-out his lair!!
A little clean is WELL RECEIVED:
IF-with-”cleanliness” – you are bereaved!
A sweep and scrub; STAY CLEAN, you BUB!
The table! sink! and NOW – your tub!!
They’re ALL SO CLEAN, and, suddenly,
YOU-FEEL-CLEAN-TOO – It’s pleasantly,
A-surprise! Now, your step is light,
And your room and soul and life is BRIGHT!!
Just CLEAN YOUR ROOM – plus! Under-The-Sink,
And you will feel “in the pink!”
Your bed is made!!! And so are you;
You’re MADE – to feel good, Not “blue!”
The floors are swept, and the-ceiling-tile,
Doth greet you – with “an overhead smile!”
You don’t feel sick; you-don’t-feel tired –
By golly! (shall-I-say-it?) YOU’RE FEELING “WIRED,”
Enough to go and mow the lawn!
The leaves and pine cones! They soon are gone!
The birds do sing; the raccoons play;
The hummingbirds-too-have-a GORGEOUS DAY!!
And, in a flash, you’ve cleaned your place,
And, NOW, the-neighbors-are-in-THAT-SPACE!
They’re CLEANING-THEIR-ROOMS and getting so happy,
Eli-min-ating – ALL-THE-STUFF-THAT’S CRAPPY!!
Your neighborhood AND TOWN have-become,
Your glorious-state’s “jewel!” I’m not so dumb!
Just CLEAN YOUR ROOM – and keep it clean,
SO – now The Country’s – the-best-I’ve-(ever)-seen!!*
And other countries are following “suit;”
They’re CLEANING THEIR ROOMS! It IS a “hoot!”
AND, NOW, THE PLANET’S CLEANED, TO BOOT!
But, suddenly, ALIENS are going: “Shoot! Earth’s so clean! It’s a sad reflection – on-our-unclean-rooms, so THEY HAVE AN ELECTION! and decide to invade THE SPOTLESS EARTH!
‘Cause they wanna live here – AND GIVE “SECOND” BIRTH,
To-their-alien-babies, in a clean environ,
So they bring-in warships – and-on-Earth they’re firin’!
And they BLOW UP THE PLACE, the buildings and my city,
Are all made-into-dust-and-rubble! It’s such a pity!! 🙁
Now! MY ROOM’S A MESS! and The Aliens leave,
‘Cause Earth’s NOT – what-they-used to believe!!
It-is so unclean, filled with toxic dust!
What shall I do? Whom shall I trust?
As I looked about – ME – I had an idea!!
I’ll CLEAN MY ROOM! Just wait! You’ll see-a,
BRIGHT TOMORROW! Clean’ll do the trick!
To make me feel-great, NOT sick!
SO I GOT-ME THE BROOM, THE SWEEPER AND THE RAGS,
I took me a nap – and rested my legs!! 🙂 – <3
🙂 – Whew! What a day!! But, WAIT! Holy smokes, there is a postscript here!!
HERE IT IS:
So! Since the alien invasion, I’ve been feelin’ kinda tired: so here’s me plan:
I’LL DRINK ME A LOT OF COFFEE! IT’LL GET ME OFF MY CAN!
So, I drank a bunch of java, and I’m up and going!
BUT! Then the aliens started to talk: “What-seeds are THEY sowing?”
A: COFFEE BEANS; “WE WANT SOME O’ THOSE!”
So, they got the galactic warships ready – to defeat US – foes!
We got the only decent coffee supply,
In The Universe – Who knows WHY?
BUT I got me an idea!! We’ll just SHARE the potential plunder,
With the aliens – so they won’t tear us all asunder!!
So! Yay! We’re all drinking coffee – aliens, humans, birds and a cat,
And we’re ALL COMPLETELY WIRED! Now, what-cha think-o’ that?
So, I got me an idea! Let’s CLEAN OUR ROOMS!
And I got us cleaning supplies! LOTS O’ BROOMS!
I’m-tellin’-ya! EVERYONE’S CLEANING! Sure & fast,
AND GOD IN HEAVEN IS HAPPY AT LAST!!
For IT IS SHE, who gives me all these notions:
“CLEANLINESS-IS-NEXXXT-TO-GODLINESS!” is why all this commotion!
And God’s REALLY sexy – She lives in Australia!
And – IF you send her a-self-addressed-stamped-box, a-broom-She’ll-mail’ya!
And She really loves coffee too, BLACK & SWEET!
We’re gettin’ married soon! AND SHE’S IN HEAT!! 🙂 – Whoopee!
fin. <3 ?
