to my carpet...

They said you were dirty,
all your stains they show.
Time to get you cleaned
so no one will know

You’re not even black yet
just a dull dingy grey,
but they're coming to clean you.
Today, of all days

Oh carpet, dear carpet
with messes soaked in
I feel I mistreated you,
she says with a grin

Out dirt, dust, beer
and dog accidents too.
You'll be nice and clean
after your professional shampoo.

House was listed on Wednesday and we've had two showings so far, can I say MAJOR pain in the arse. Let's hurry up and get this puppy sold so we can get back to Newfoundland!


  1. Good luck and hoping for a quick sale!

  2. If you can't get the stains out, place a sofa over it. Works for me. Good thing I have a lot of sofas.

  3. Hope the clean carpet makes all the difference in the world!

  4. fingers crossed for a quick sale and a speedy return to the rock

  5. Wishing you good luck, a quick sale and a smooth move... maybe I should say easy transition, smooth move sounds like a laxative commercial.

  6. Good luck with that! That's why I don't like carpet. We've proven that we don't take very good care of it. I prefer hardwood or tile (not that we take very good care of that either). I hope it all goes well and your move is a fairly smooth one!

  7. Good luck! All will be well I am sure!

  8. Love how it uses common issues of today's society. Ok, honestly, I just like the fact that it's a dirty house poem. Makes me think of house party for some odd reason.

  9. Love the poem - my rug can relate! :)

    Fingers cross you sell quickly.

  10. You're pretty talented, making that all rhyme! LOL

    Good luck with the sale. Hope it goes quickly for you.

  11. Eesh. This just reminded me of how desperately my carpets need to be cleaned!
