Housekeeping

Today I got Granny off the fan,
Uncle off Mozart’s bust.
Don’t laugh—we too will turn again
to what we’re fashioned from, viz., dust!

Dribble
Name derived from the name of the micro-fiction form “Drabble,” which is a story consisting of exactly 100 words. A Dribble is a poem consisting of exactly 100 letters (not characters—spaces and punctuation are not counted) in four lines.
Because of the brevity of the poem, the title is integral to the poem (though not included in the count).
Usually humorous
Rhyme scheme: abab


Yes, I really did some dusting today. And no, I do not believe the dust bunnies are my relations. 🙂 But I like how that a simple household chore can bring back memories of loved ones who are no longer with us. Thinking of them takes the drudgery out of task.
