Droplets of Verse: ‘Bad Housekeeping’

An old vacuum cleaner that’s lost its suction
The Tories obsess over deficit reduction
Average wages stuck in a deep freeze
Sell-by-dates fast approaching, a lurking malaise
Swept under the carpet is a thick bed of grime
An army of dirt busters couldn’t clear this slime
Shirts may be pressed, shoes all polished and shiny
Meanwhile, the kitchen sink is piled high with dirty crockery
