Smuggling from time

Scrubbing dishes,

I find contentment,

Soap lathers and scrubber work in tandem,

Banishing grim out of precarious corners,

Cold water from tap flows,

To turn otherwise greasy dishes squeaky clean,

It’s just but an everyday chore,

But what is it about washing the dishes I find contentment?

Smuggling from travails of time,

I find a corner all by myself,

To engage in this otherwise uninteresting chore!
