The Basset Lady of Buttercup Lane

I vaccum all day, and I clean all night
to rid my home of basset hair
I start with the sofa until it's alright
and then I get to work on the chair

Now on to the kitchen, and it's floor
with it's tiles-once so bright and shiny
that are covered now with paw prints galore
Is it any wonder that I'm so whiny?

The bathroom mat, I find, is soaking wet
These hounds are just too bold
It's not enough their water is fresh
It seems it must also be COLD!

My windows must be washed and shined
for they are are now, with drool, smeared
looks like they licked them AFTER they dined
Now the neighbours are looking in. Weird!

I've seen the looks they give-that are hard
Still I say 'hello', and flash a cheery smile
as I march with my shovel out into the yard
and search carefully for the day's newest pile

Yes, I know exactly what they think of me
I'm called "The Basset Lady of Buttercup Lane"
But I don't really care, because tomorrow, you see
My hounds and I... will DO IT ALL AGAIN!

go down to the junction and look at the sign,
it will say: Buttercup Cres - not Lane! <_<

But it's probably hard to rhyme Cres with again... :lol:

The poem is wonderful, as always! :D

Love the poem, Sandy. We have the hair, nose prints on windows, and paw prints on the ceramic tile here, too.
