Getting Ready

Fetch the bleach, sugar soap, disinfectant, and the wax,

clean the walls, fetch the paint and be sure to fill the cracks,

mop the floor, hover up, dust the shelves, and shine the brass,

kill the weeds, feed the plants, prune the trees, and cut the grass,

clean the bog, change the roll, scratch the limescale from the sink,

change the soap, flannel too, change blue towels for the pink,

brand new clothes, shine my shoes, cut my hair for on this day,

Oh my God, nearly here,

 yes… Mother’s on her way!
