A vacuum to suck away dirt and dust
Is like an anteater clearing the bugs
There are times when it’s an absolute must
To clear build up on the surface and rugs
Into corners, they tend to stay gathered
Out of sight until they decide to grow
Healthy cleanliness, wouldn’t you rather?
A place of comfort that will always show
After the vacuum eats the dirty grime
It’s waste can be tossed in the garbage bin
It’s a task that requires work and time
To reorder the state your home is in
Be an anteater for a cleaning day
It reorganizes the disarray
While teaching a child the fun of a vacuum, imagination was required to make it fun. Vacuuming sounded boring and wasn’t favourable until I suggested pretending to be an anteater. Just imagine the dirt and dust as ants and our hand-held vacuum as anteater. It’ll be fun feeding our vacuum while the house gets cleaned.
And so now we know what we must be to work together and keep the house clean.
