Is this the first ever
poem to celebrate the kitchen sink?
(Don't worry, it will be over
in a blink.)
If you're posh it's ceramic,
if not, it's stainless steel,
you'd struggle without it
when there are potatoes to peel.
Women used to be chained to them,
now they're the domain of men,
armed with aprons and Marigolds,
a huge performance unfolds!
Perfect for bathing the baby,
the bunny or the dog maybe,
Ideal to wash your pants
or if it's big the elephant's.
If it gets blocked you need to plunge,
to clear away the greasy gunge.
use it to stack the odd dirty dish,
but never as a home for a lonely fish.
It comes in very handy,
for an emergency wee,
don't forget to pull the curtains,
or the neighbours will see!
