Chaotic Kitchen Capers

Post  jinettyx on Mon Nov 07 2011, 02:56



At night when all is calm and still,
Implements are itching
The things you would not expect, will be
A-stirring in your kitchen.

The toaster, such a jumpy fellow
Is first to pop his head
Awaking all around him
While you’re tucked up in your bed.

The crafty cutleries are on the loose
Rummaging in the drawer
Prizing cupboards open
And then scuttling to the floor

The caddies in the corner
They be squabbling amongst each other
Who is more important than
His other fellow brother.

The arguments are rife down there
The kettle boils up quick
Hot headed as it’s steaming up
The mugs give it a kick.

The sink sits in the corner
Feeling somewhat drained
Emotionally she turns on the taps
This chaos is insane!

The clock that hangs upon the wall
Gives a thorough ‘ticking off’
For pots and pans are rattling
Because they’ve got a cough.

Wooden spoons are stirring up
A whole new heap of trouble
As the washing machine is overloaded
And detergent starts to bubble.

So if you’ve ever wondered
Why when you get out of bed
The kitchen looks so messy
Take a good look around instead

Isn’t it so obvious?
That while you sleep at night
Things are fighting in the kitchen
That’s why it looks a fright!!!

Nice bit of writing there Jinetty, The picture reminds me of my kitchen after I have washed up...lol. Only the implements would forget where they were and end up back in the normal places they should be....lol Like sunny
