Death Trap

The washer.

The dryer.

And the washer again.

My bulbs are out

and my pockets are thin.

The dishes are dirty,

and the garbage disposal clogged,

not to mention the floor,

I owe that to the dog.

The mattress is sinking

and so is the floor,

just that one spot, right by the door.

But I pay my rent and I rest my head

cause at the end of the day,

I have a bed.





One thought on “Death Trap

  1. I like this one a lot. The only suggestions I have is not get rid of the capital letters in certain lines that fall at the middle of sentences. This one, I think, would be ready to include in your next submission with the changes. I like it.
