“Just a Housewife”

I think there’s an illusion
in today’s status quo
whereby a college degree
depicts what you know.
 
You see I am a housewife
just simple and plain
I’ve no shingle to hang
embossed with my name.
 
My job though rewarding
starts early each day
I help two of my children
for school get away.
 
Then my next step is breakfast
for that husband of mine
yes he needs my assistance
to reach work on time.
 
Now that everyone’s gone
I can take a short break
then a cry from the nursery
means the babys awake.
 
A quick change is needed
and then some powder to dry
then I refill her bottle
and it’s sleepy time bye.
 
Now it’s off to the kid’s room
to make up their bed
then I out clothes in the washer
and do the dishes I dred.
 
Well it’s lunchtime already
and have the baby to feed
then I make out my list
for the groceries we need.
 
I then get out the stroller
for they say it is wise
to push the baby to market
for your exercise.
 
The shopping all finished
and put the baby to bed
yes and I made shacks for the children
with their favorite spred.
 
Now soon after I’ve vacuumed
and dusted once m ore
the children from school
come through the front door.
 
The sound of their voices
I knew the baby would wake
so outside I sent them
and put on the steak.
 
It was later than usual
when my husband arrived
yet thanks to the snacks
the children survived.
 
Now dinner is all finished
so the dishes I’ll stack
knowing tomorrow at seven
I’m sure to be back.
 
Yes I’m an occupation Housewife
though I’ll make it quite clear
I’m not just a housewife
but a Household Engineer!
