           The order of disorder

Of all the effects that lays low this man,
Is the intrusion of a wives cleaning plan.
Although disorder is the rule of my lay,
There is order in the turmoil of my way.

Each heap to me a specific pile of stuff,
Though it looks like the acme of scruff.
It is to my mind, filed in my order.
But to hers, it's the height of disorder.

I cannot put a lock on some of my goal,
For she has free access to all of my soul.
But my garden blooms flowers in sensitive soil.
Not to be transplanted by cleanings foil.

So now precious time is lost you see,
To put back disorder, makes sense to me.
And I am saddened and she is remiss,
But I'm sure it will all clear with a kiss.

When I was young t'was my personal hell.
But now the bells toll the sound of, Oh Well.

On my desk, disordered order
Is the order that I know
Until my secretary comes
And fixes it, her face aglow
And then she realizes that
Her work to me didn't fix a thing
For now disorder rules my mind
Cause I cannot find anything

I know the feeling, Sy
I liked your poem,
Liz

Sy,
    I know your pain my friend. . .

A place for everything and everything in its place. . .

Excellent as always. . .

Sy,
I too suffer from this affliction , however I refer to it as " a place for everything and everything all over the place " . Guilty of disorderly conduct and sentenced to the "stute". Bailiff , see this man out!

Just as your wife it bothers me
For piles look like much debris    
They scream for order, don't you see?
And quite in need of cleaning's spree!

To each his own, Is what I say
What floats your boat, what makes your day
Whatever helps the poet write
Whatever makes his soul take flight!  



Great poem, Seymour....Seymour....is that you under that pile?!

LoL, boy can I relate!
