Hi friends,

This is just for the sake of a funny poem and also dedicated to the domestic help whose absence for a day hurts us. My domestic help only does the laundry and dirty dishes. I do the rest of the work.

An ominous silence takes over my broken heart. 
How long shall I endure this pain? 
I have been scrubbing dishes for the past two days. 
My maid has done it again. 

She's on leave, and so here I am. 
Dusting and mopping the floor.
I don't mind the cooking. 
But clearing the mess is such a bore. 

At last! I finished doing the dishes. 
Now I can take a break for a while. 
Just then my daughter enters the kitchen. 
Dropping a few dirty dishes into the sink in style. 

I cast a murderous glance at her. 
She gives me a sincere smile. 
Drat! There goes my motherly heart. 
A face so innocent and free from guile. 

It's time to do the laundry. 
And off goes the Electricity, sparking my fury. 
The washing machine is useless. 
I wash the clothes with such a force that I fear I may cause them injury. 

Finally! I completed the household chores. 
I have learned to appreciate my maid. 
My lassie! Please come back to work. 
And forgive me for any hurtful word I said. 

I realized how hard she works. 
And it's just not only my house, but she handles several houses together. 
I hope she recovers from her poor health. 
May she be healthy and fit as a fiddle. 
Let's not take her for granted ever. 

Thank you so much for taking your precious time to visit my website. Hope you enjoyed reading my blogs. 😊😊

  1. Hahaha! I laughed aloud all the way through this one. Now I have to go review my funny housekeeping poems, what a great reminder! People (men) too often think housekeeping is simple. And to take it beyond that to homemaking is an art in itself. Great post ~ observant, educational, and so funny 🀣

  11. Aparna, this is a fitting tribute to domestic helpers. Love this!
    But these lines made me laugh. When my daughter gives me the sincerest smile, ah, I immediately melt. πŸ₯°
