The Washing Machine

The Washing Machine

A Poem by YouoweYoupay
"

Take the fundamental step.

"

 

 

 

 

The Washing Machine

 

 

Pearls in the palm

Of a lovely woman

Glimmer and shimmer and twinkle

 

A promise to abolish

All stubborn stains

And fabric

That never wrinkles

 

Stale lamb blood

Dyed in white

For our customers'

Satisfaction

 

Now once you've learned

For every nasty deed

Stomps a nastier reaction

 

So take the fundamental step

And break the circling arrow

 

Wild fires are yours to intercept

And horizons are yours to narrow

 

 

Get your head outta that washing machine.

Wow! on the surface this is light hearted but a second read or perhaps a third and it delivers a nice smack to the buttocks of us sheeple. Well done.

Really?? I'm so glad you loved it! Thanks for stopping by. :)
Impressive, the title speaks for itself and the ending makes it really profound.
It looks like a screen but it is a washing machine indeed.
Well done dear... keep them coming.
