Life Cycle

swish-swash

the friendly old slosh

of working on the wash

 

long past baby bibs

reader’s digest tips

and red stains from lips

 

suds sud

suddenly

subtly…

 

swish-swash

the mish-mosh

of OshKosh b’Gosh

 

growing pains

and grape juice stains

riding in Kenmore cavalcades

 

hopes and dreams

teenage tears and screams

and that spilled ice cream

 

swish-swash

a Swiss watch

wet in the wash

 

tick tock no more

a slam of the door

the mystery pair of muddied drawers

 

a prom dress no-no

pajama bottom hobo

bleach the whites thorough

 

swish-swash

that friendly old slosh

ever eager to watch

 

years gone by

always fill to the line

now an early bird before five

 

and so it’s grandkids

who come on weekend visits

o, what a life to be lived
