‘Laundry Day’ (new poem)

So it’s laundry day.


Tonight is the last night I spend in my hometown for a few weeks. Tomorrow I go back to Iowa State at the end of Thanksgiving Break. I’m washing clothes before I go because it’s free here. I’m busy and tired packing today, so I wrote a short acrostic about what doing laundry at Iowa State is like. Enjoy!

Laundry Day
By Maggie McGinity

Legs are sore
And my arms hurt
Nightgowns and skirts
Down the stairs and
Round the corner
Yes! There’s a machine open

Detergent, wash, wet clothes
And the only open dryer’s broken
Yeah, this is the way it always goes.”

Silly quote today:

“It is better to have loved and lost than to have to do forty pounds of laundry a week.”
-Laurence J. Peter
