THE HASSLE OF THE DUVET

poem by: Darryl Ashton
Written on Sep 27, 2017

I pulled it out a while
ago from the washing
machine.
The colours look much
brighter now from being
nice and clean.

Taking a duvet cover
off a double bed is hell.
And then the wretched
thing requires replacing
back as well.

So now I face the 
awesome task and wonder
if I'll cope.
No one's at home to
lend a hand, but while
there's life, there's hope.

The duvet's very 
cumbersome, which 
doesn't help at all.
It bunches up and
won't lie flat, and 
drives me up the wall.

Hooray! The cover's on
at last! I'm shattered
from the strain.
One thing's for sure, 
an age will pass before
it's washed again.
