Mistakenly, she thought, four hands were better than two.
But twice makes quadruple the work.
Don’t get me wrong, partnership is good.
But then there are those moments,
Hands and arms covered in suds,
When you wonder, why can’t it all get done.
Rinsed dishes under dirty, enough!
Now it’s a double wash, and an extra sink rinse,
All for freaking what?
Lefty versus right, everything is backwards…
If you want me to do the dishes, stop setting traps!
A soaked shirt, a shortened temper,
And questions about ‘what’s wrong?’
Like you really don’t know!
But no more fighting, it will not change…
But at least they’re done….until next time.
