Dirty Dishes

Dirty Dishes

A Poem by Misterr Remeat
"

My Mood today whilst washing dishes

"
I was washing dishes in a drunken state
When I accidentally dropped and broke a plate
I just loved that sound when it hit the floor
That I really really wanted to smash some more

A gravy boat and a soup tureen
were the next to be smashed to smithereens
as I dropped three cups it brought a tear to my eye
There are now less dishes to wash and dry

Plates began flying hither and yon
I think some ended up on the lawn
it must have been horrendous, the sound of the drops
i guess thats why someone called up the cops

I opened the door but what could I say
My house was in total disarray
The one cop said "Son we have to fine ya
For disturbing the peace with flying china"

I stood there grinning ticket in hand
and promised not to do it again
I cant remember having such fun
The fine was well worth it, the dishes were done!

This is so hilarious, playful & imaginative! A rare find on this website, as many are serious messages. I love fun writing, which I also try to do, but yours is a huge inspiration for how to stretch an ordinary thing into a spider web of whimsy! Love this! Good rhyming, too, which is also one of my passions! Glad I spotted this one! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

If you are giggling then my work here is done! Thanks for the review!
Can't tell if you're actually being serious or playful in this poem, but whichever it was I couldn't help laughing. It's so well timed in its comedy and the rhymes really pack the punch. The musicality could use some tweaking, for some lines don't quite flow too well with the musicality (a few too many syllables comprise some lines). With the removal of some superfluous details, this would be a fun read for all. Well done!

Thanks! Written in about ten minutes, so not too polished. I still haven't finished the dishes...
