Oh Don’t ADD No More!

This flat is such a mess.
These muscles are hurting me,
I’d rather just sleep.
Dishes are in the sink,
Laundry is mountainous;
Don’t know where’s the cat?

There goes another night, I haven’t closed my eyes.
Just another day in my life, the chaos stays.
Its not that I don’t want to do anything.
Its just that I’m overwhelmed by the task.
When it comes down to it
I’d rather just sit here and write this poem, and then another.
About my dearest friend and lover.

Where might I find her?
Wonder if shes ginger or blonde
Oh yes, you are correct!
I haven’t met her yet!
Don’t even know her name.

Better she’s in my mind than in my eyes
Just look around me, she’ll think I’m so lame.
I don’t want to lie, but I’d rather just sleep.

Oh don’t ADD any more on that plate.
Oh wait I’ve got to wash those dishes anyway.
Now I forgot what else I wanted to say.

I’ve had people in here to clean.
One way or another I had to pay.
Just don’t ADD any more,
Or you can go through that door.
Where ya goin’? Ain’t ya goin to help me?

This flat is such a mess.
This body is aching. It’s hurting me!
I’d rather just sleep.
Oh look! It’s time for tea.
