List of Lists

I am a list writer

for almost everything

List for the shopping,

which I will leave behind

 

A long list in the lounge

of all the jobs in pending

some will have a tick by friday

The chances are it will be longer

 

There is a list in the shed

of the garden jobs a waiting

there’s one for the car

Its so untidy in there

 

Lists on a Monday, grows on a tuesday

it carries on for Wednesday and thursday

By Friday and the weekend, there are lists of lists

So on Monday I start the list again

 

This weekend i need to complete them

Why you ask ? the answers simple

To clear the head, the mess the muddle

Tidy house, makes a tidy mind.

Mess and Mayhem

A Loud whistling noise shatters the silence

The waft of cooking bacon rises up the stairs

The dog paces backwards and forwards

There is a clattering downstairs

The microwave hums and pings

There is a clatter in the knife drawer

The cupboards squeak and bang

Its very early for all this noise

Its just another monday morning

My son is making Mess and Mayhem in the kitchen

It must be the hamster wheel of work

Calling us to start yet another busy week.
