Billie Holiday Workshop Poem

We will post the full workshop on our Stirred Poetry blog soon. I thought I would post this short and silly poem using the blues.

The Washing Up Blues

Everything’s stuck to the sink

ain’t go no man to wash up no

you could be my lover

my scrubbing brush baby

Oh I’ll cook for you if you’ll

do the dishes baby

I’ve left it so long

I don’t know what’s blocking the plughole

I got those washing up blues

the plates are stacked high baby

and they are oh so sticky

ain’t got no brillo pads baby

there’s something oozing on the draining board

you could bleach it baby.
