And then the justice, In fair round belly with good capon lined, Describe him with 2 adjectives of your own With eyes severe and beard of formal cut, Full of wise saws and modern instances; And so he plays his part. I’m very important and have lots of very wise things to say… DOD! How does this beard compare to his previous one? The sixth age shifts Into the lean and slipper’s pa notation, With spectacles on nose and pouch on side, His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide For his shrunk shank; and his big manly voice, Turning again toward childish treble, pipes And whistles in his sound.

Will be working in a pair / by myself (delete) chose this topic because: All the world’s a laundry basket All the world’s a laundry basket, And all the sweaty tops and stinking socks merely clothing: They have their stains and their fetidness; And one soiled garment in their time gets washed repeatedly, Their washing cycle being seven stages. At first, the sullied pile, Smelling and reeking in the washer’s arms.

And then the creased up bundle, with its seams And ragged, unsearched cloth shoved like someone despised Unwillingly into the washing machine. And then the bather, Churning like butter, with a womb-like sound Set to the right economical temperature. Then a damp dank mountain, Full of aromatic perfume and fresh like the spring, Wet to the touch, sudden and quick to fall to the floor, Seeking the muddied floor Even though the washer’s careful. And then the drying process, In fair wind, with good pegging, They fill the line in regimented fashion,

Full of air they dance; And so the drying process plays its part. The sixth stage slips Into the linen lined wicker basket and folded tower, With heavy jeans at the bottom and lighter things on top, The creased faces, deeply ingrained, far too noticeable to just put them straight in the wardrobe; inevitably their blatant bumpy lines, Turn again toward the iron, hissing All the while. That ends this cleansing and domestic history, Is the placing on hangers and storing away, Without fuss, without stains, without creases, without a body to make them feel loved.
