The Housewife Production Line – Written Tuesday 4th April 2006 (Aged 31)

The Housewife Production Line

another product
from the housewife production line
first invented circa 1880 or thereabouts
another product
of the, play your part brigade
housewife and mother
and just to produce the offspring
required husband and sometime lover
from the dull dreary machine,
that spits out housewifes whoc can only dream
washing loaded, meals cooked,
beds kept fully prepared and totally clean
a dream junkie as they go quietly spare
know your place, and know your role
clean your curtains,
just so they can keep out the cold
another product
from the housewife production line
a victorian contraption
when women were meant to be devoid of mind




James Garratt – Tuesday 4th April 2006
