Why I Clean On Wednesdays

Wednesday mornings I sweep
my prescriptions into a drawer,

black folder my lists
and rituals,

make happy beds,
and strip the couch

so my maid can clean
without seeing my dirt.

I had a cleaning maid in for a year after having knee surgery. It used to stress me out that I had to tidy/clean the house before she came . . . there was definitely lots of 'shoving into drawers' that went on. :)

Speaking from the viewpoint of the cleaning lady, I never could figure out why people did that. Hee hee.

I was a maid for years. I wish you'd been one of the slobs I cleaned for. Most excellent poem! (If I ever had a maid, I'd do the same thing, I'm sure.) xo

If I had a maid, I'd have to do lots and lots of "tidying" before they came.

If I had a maid, she'd just have to suck it up and deal.
