Let’s Look At Housework, Ode to Husbands

houseworkToday is Saturday and since I am busy doing lots of cleaning chores I really don’t love doing, I came up with this fun little poem looking at housework to bring a smile to other who are doing likewise…Enjoy!


I surely am a terrible spouse, I have no love for cleaning house

When dust upon the table lies, I pass it by and close my eyes

When there are dishes in the sink, I turn my head and quickly blink

Some days I think I’ll make the bed, But then I crawl back in instead

I’m much too busy, is what I say, I’ve got a book to write today

And when the clock says time to cook, I plug myself in to work on the book

Plots and scenes, words galore,  Writing a book is never a chore

But when it comes to cleaning the house …I really am a terrible spouse!

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
