RAP: Soul-sucking laundry

soul-sucking laundry

i found my soul
at the base of a mountain
of dirty laundry

i had the feeling
something was missing
but oddly enough
i hadn’t realized it was gone

until yesterday
when i reached over and
pulled off a dirty towel
stuffed it into the washer

when i turned back around
there it was
hands on hips
left toe tapping
eyes blazing mad

for crying out loud
it said as it climbed back in
and settled where it belonged
shoving aside the clutter that
had accrued in its absense

i sheepishly resumed
stuffing laundry in the washer
poured the soap
slammed the door shut
and pushed start

  1. Oh, glory. How it does such my soul! Girl, I totally love this. May I print it and post it in my laundry room? Perhaps it will motivate to clear the floor of those piles for fear of losing the soul underneath…
