I’ve tried to train the dust to fall
on carpets rather than
all objects big and small
but dust it seems does what it can
to cover everything there is
from a window blind
to whatever it can find
and takes away my bliss.

I’ve even tried to con it
by calling it a hobby;
collecting dust
a loafer’s must;
even tried to lobby
but alas without fib
it covers my entire crib.

Never enough to fill a hole;
can’t find a purpose or a goal
won’t ever really go away
just moves around from day to day.

Seems it’s a bust,
better than rust;

Much of it is a part of us... or used to be anyway! R Duke
Loved reading this one out loud. Dust is the cosmos in our living room. A universal pain.
You are so right. From dust to dust...
Great poem. R
Let the dust fall where it may! That's what my grandpa always would say.
Oh, I hate dust, too. Without it there would not be nearly so much to clean. Well, that and cat hair.
A dusty speck of a poem. Hope you are well, dear dream.
Love it.
"collecting dust" as a hobby!!
