Housewife Haiku

There is a layer
of dust which coats the front room
Quick - shut the drapes


Food is wonderful
There's no way I will cook it
every single day


Cat puke on the floor
barely digested morsels
with luck, he'll recycle.


Eight licked stamps, two spoons,
a box worth of cracker crumbs
where is the mouse pad


Pillows leak feathers
Silk sheets have no elastic
Close the bedroom door


Children with dirty
faces are a gift from God
Please do not adjust

These are terrific! You've inspired me to write my first one.
