Fridge


My dearest little fridgy
There are some things in life
That only friends will say
And that my dear is what
I've come to do today. 

Oh loveliest of fridges

My true and loyal friend. 
Now please don't take this wrong
But all around this house
Is the most revolting pong. 

Sweetest of all fridges

"What's that to me? " You ask. 
Well, I'll tell you in a jiffy
You know that smell I talked about?
It's you, you're very whiffy.

So my darling fridgy

I've assembled the equipment
And I know you're very posh
But I'm striping you quite naked
And you're going to have a wash. 

Most marvellous of fridges

All gleaming, sparkling clean. 
Look how beautiful you are.
You smell as fresh as daisies
Meine Liebling, you're a star!

  2. Oh you made me laugh today. Encouraging our fridges to keep running - that's important isn't it. And encouragement joined with blessings and thanksgiving. Glad you were able to clean out your fridge.
    Blessings,

      At least the fridge doesn't smell so bad, except I have loaded it with smelly cheeses so we could be in for a repeat performance.

  9. What a fun poem, Pea. I for one do not have the patience to strip down my fridge and clean it out. So I usually do a shelf at a time. Lazy me. But it always feels so good to have a clean fridge. Nice meeting you!
