Gershwin, Ira

Summer time, and the living room's crowded
Fish bowl's algae-y, but the clutter's not mine.

Yes, I do need to clean the aquarium again, but I want it made perfectly clear:

The rest of the mess is not mine!

My living room is about 15x15'. Besides the sofa, two rocking chairs, one armchair, a bookshelf, two large house plants, and three matching tables, it currently contains:

Jeff's computer
Mike's laptop
Steven's current automotive redecorating project
Six clay projects
Three boxes of Steven's not-so-great AP sculpture projects
Two other nice large-scale student sculptures
Mike's face moisturizer
Two flashlights
Two screwdrivers
Two Quentin Tarrantino DVDs
One box of stuff to take to Goodwill
Two mobiles
Three bank statements
Mike's comforter and pillow from the dorm
Three remote controls
One cordless phone
One cell phone set on vibrate
Two pairs of shoes, size 11 1/2
Two papier mache lizards on a bus stop bench (O.K., those are mine)
Last December's Christmas cards, letters, and photos (mine, too)
One bowl of York Peppermint Patties, a low-fat food

It is a good thing I go off to work, hi-ho, hi-ho.
