Washing Dishes

A waterfall hums as it descends into the sink
Rapidly rising, it becomes quite deep
Bathers jump in with their shampoo
Scrubbing and rinsing, becoming like new
A bather got in a fight with a sponge
The latter dived in and made a quick lunge
The bather could not dodge the attack
And was thrown from the pool cleansed of grease and fat-back
The other bathers slowly followed in suit
Scrubbed clean from pizza and some moldy green soup
One by one they were tossed from the lake
So tired from swimming they were barely awake
They were carefully dried and tucked in on the shelf
So exhausted were they, they could do nothing else
The pond slowly, quietly gurgled away
As the waterfall slept waiting for the next day
