Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

According to my neighbour, Granny Hotchkiss
Domestic bliss has come to this:
If ya don’t do the dishes
Ya sleep with the fishes

Mind your manners and her rules,
Granny doesn't suffer fools.
You want to eat? Just grab a plate
And to the table don't be late.
Wash your hands. Clean your nails.
Tuck that shirt, we abide no tails.
Mind your language. Don't be crass.
Granny doesn't take no sass.
Pass the pepper and the salt.
Ask for pardon if you air a fault.
Keep those elbows off the table,
Or you'll be eating in the stable.
Take small bites and chew completely.
You're not a pig, please eat neatly.
Say, "please" and "thank you". Sit up straight.
Don't forget to clean your plate.
After dinner Granny's wish is
That you stay and do the dishes.
Wash the pans, the cups, the plates,
Put them in the cupboard straight.
If you do all this just right,
You're welcome back here every night.

Best to do the dishes
Its not so very hard.
Don't want to end up with the fishes
Like a piece of lard.

There are so many things to do
In the running of a house.
Vacuum, cleaning fridge & loo
Come Granny, don't you grouse!
