.................

................In the beginning was Eve,
................mother of all homemakers.
................Before fast food,
................vacuum-cleaners,
................Pampers, bleach, hot and cold running water,
................before maids and handymen,
................it was her purpose to keep house tidy .

.......................NO ONE,
.......................but the homemaker
.......................(mom)
.......................shall do the work.

.......................Housework,
.......................aptly called,
......................."Domestic Duties"
.......................ie:[it]
.......................translates:

.................................1.
................................Only mom knows how to do [it].
..........................I don't want to get in trouble,
..............................so save [it] for Mom.

..........................2.
........................Mom so enjoys [it].
......................I wouldn't dare deny her [it].

...................3.
.................Housework:
................a sacred institution
..............that women have trained for
............since time immortal.
..........DAH . . . didn't your mom tell you?

................Last, but not least…

....................4.
......................H.O.U.S.E.W.O.R.K:
........................Happy
..........................Offerings
...........................Using
..........................Simply
.......................Employed
....................Ways
.................Of
.................Residence
.....................Keeping

........................Homemakers,
..........................it's a great honor placed on our shoulders!
............................Dare I say,
..............................the very survival of domesticity.

..........................Oh, we are blessed!
