I haven't made any verse just lately, because I've been ill and there seems to be no rhyme nor reason in it ... little joke there, heheh ... I wrote this when I used to keep house for kids - fun - nice memories - but us housekeepers used to discuss how sometimes you wonder whether your personality is going to survive another odd sock search. (Odd socks are my poetical symbol for parenthood) ... for all you Mums & Dads out there ... hey, do you think somebody could invent an app for finding socks that match the socks you have already found?

Always Something

I'm mopping the floor
and swearing at things
that snaggle your feet
while your fancy takes wings.

Sometimes I'm near
and sometimes I'm far,
but that's always here
cos I are where I are.

Someplace is where
it's distant and faint,
but I never get there
cos I ain't where I ain't.

Someone I know
could be someone I be,
but never quite so
cos a me is a me.

To be what I ought
would be what I ask,
but it's only a thought
cos a task is a task.

"Someday!" I scream,
"I'll have nothing to do
"but seek in a dream
"who was dreaming of who!"
