The Laundry Beast
The beast who feasts on clothes
rumbling the house floor,
is an enormous old beast.
Waiting to feast.
Every time it gobbles clothes,
its body wobbles, like a penguin.
When its done, it makes a sound.
Thats when my mom, looks around.
"Nirali, fold the clothes, from the laundry."
I rolled my eyes and wandered.
I went to find a safe place to hide,
I wouldn't do the laundry....
I wouldn't do the laundry.... even if I had to die!
I ran to my room,
and hid behind my broken broom.
I scurried into my dark closet,
and hid behind the composite1.
I went to the sink,
and saw my pet skink1,
whose yellow spots were the sun.
That's when I realized,
I couldn't hide from my mom.
She came up close,
and signaled, " Go do the clothes!"
I frowned and stood up,
but not a sound had come out.
I went to beast, and opened its mouth,
focusing only, on getting the clothes out.
It roared like a beast,
It snored like a beast.
I took out the clothes,
and looked back once more,
It wasn't a beast, instead stood in front...
Now everyday I do the laundry,
I turn turn back and look...
making sure there's no beast.
Just a washer.
