Tuesday Poem - Filing

Piles of paper
Here and there
On the table
On the chair
Propping up the books
Stuffed in every nook
Some are old
Some are new
Grey ink, black
Occasional blue
Letters from school
Missives from work
A few old offers
Several missed perks
Now that it's piled up
Gained a personality
It's time to dive in
Clear up, finally
File it, bin it, shred it
Sort it all out fast
Then sit back with a sigh
It's gone at last

  1. Nice poem. Hope the clearing up went well!

    1. Haha! I haven't actually done it yet... I'm preparing to do it!
