Poem: Keeping house is important.
The good thoughts get folded neatly
Into the drawers and the bad thoughts are
Swept up and carried away, not under the rug
You''ll still know they''re there and nothing will
Ever really feel clean. The mania is tough to toss
It made the place a lot brighter but the power bill
Was through the roof and then the depression,
Well that needed to be sorted into recycling bins
And hopefully it''ll get remade into something
More worthwhile, because you put too many feelings
In to just toss that out. And if you''re lucky enough
To do it all in such a timely fashion, you can make
Room for love and never have to clean it all up
Alone ever again....
