Poem for Creative Writing, Pantoum style #2

Delightful Dish Room
The dish room welcomes me with spraying water
The dirty dishes stack higher than my head
I pull on gloves, tie on an apron
Get ready dishes, here I come

The dirty dishes stack higher than my head
I scrape away baked-on food
Get ready dishes, here I come
I spray down dressing boats and goblets

I scrape away baked-on food
The water ricochets off and hits my face
I spray down the dressing boats and goblets
Food debris spatters up my arms

The water ricochets off and hits my face
Pudding, ranch, mashed potatoes
Food debris spatters up my arms
It’s a very wet job

Pudding, ranch, mashed potatoes
A growing plethora of dirty dishes
It’s a very wet job
So many forks to rinse

A growing plethora of dirty dishes
My apron is filthy, covered in gunk
So many forks to rinse
I think I just got scraps in my hair

My apron is filthy, covered in gunk
Time to switch gloves – again
I think I just got scraps in my hair
The dish room welcomes me with spraying water
