A Housewife Nay!


I was never one for housework, nay,
Not me, Goodness gracious, ME? No way!
I love to learn how to be sharp and bright,
To be a writer or a poet - out of sight!

Oh, what I would do if I was clever,
A sweeping brush - I’d use one never!
My maid would do it all for me
While I would chat and sip my tea!

My keyboard would type fine and clear -
A book I’d write, one a year.
The critics might not like my style,
I would grin and bare it, with a smile.

When my first book would go on sale,
Yee, the readers, would read my tale.
Maybe you’d like it and ask for my autograph,
Then I’d go hire some domestic staff.

I was never one for housework, nay,
Not me, Goodness gracious, ME? No way!
I love to learn how to be sharp and bright,
To be a writer or a poet - out of sight!

    Hi,
    I read your poem 'A Housewife Nay! '. Nice poem and good idea.
    You said 'My maid would do it all for me'. But if your maid also says the same, what will you do?
    Your score is only 17. If you cross 100, what will you say?
    I thought the above in the lighter vein.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
