Life Cycle


the friendly old slosh

of working on the wash


long past baby bibs

reader’s digest tips

and red stains from lips


suds sud





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



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



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
