Thursday is Thanksgiving
a family gathered scene.
But before company arrives
we must get busy and clean.
The effort on cleaning
depends on who is coming to stay.
Non-related peeps mean, of course,
cleaning will take all day.
Relatives require less effort
but visible cobwebs must go.
Run a vacuum over the rug
and make sure no dust will show.
Siblings coming, however,
get a set of clean sheets,
if lucky that is,
and maybe a blanket that heats.
No use putting on airs
for those nearest on the family tree.
If they aren’t impressed by now
chances are they never will be.
