No Chores! (from 27 Aug. 2017)

You reach your hand for one old mop;

I reach before, and I say, ” Stop!”

You’re out to gather Bingo’s poop;

I’m there before you; l’ve got scoop!

The dinner dishes—not done yet,

But I will suds them, you can bet!

You’re up to make the water boil;

Already done! Your cup, my girl!

I’ve tossed the garbage, dumped the trash,

I’ve dusted shelves and polished glass.

For your vacation; yes, my dear!

Now don’t you wish that I was near?

If I were there to work for thee,

I’d give you tons of energy,

And you could read and write all day,

And let no chores get in your way!
