16th June 2011


The children have all eaten, their bellies quite content.
The bedsheets that were soiled have been changed without comment;
The washing up's been done but no need to thank me, ma'am,
As domesticated, aye, that I am.

The children have all eaten, their bellies satisfied,
The garbage has been taken out, the dishes washed and dried;
The pantry's been re-stocked but no need to thank me, ma'am,
As domesticated, aye, that I am.

The children have all eaten, the washing up's been done,
Here comes bedtime knocking on the door for everyone;
Hot water's in the flask but no need to thank me, ma'am,
As domesticated, aye, that I am.
