It’s dirty again.

It’s dirty again
cleaning is a task
that’s rarely complete
wiping the dirt off the floor
a scatter of feet
and there is plenty more.

Scrub and scrub more
knees ache
above wooden planks
nails escaping
and the knees are their final landing
sponges soaking in the sweat
and the frustrations
that never stay clean.

Peroxide for the knees
the sting is daunting
as they place themselves upon the floor
pouring in the disinfectant
as if cleaning a physical wound
will dissolve it all
only if they do it all tomorrow
and each day after
it’ll never stop.

Thanks for reading.
