Today there are limited reserves,
Only scattered jars on the pantry shelves.
Neither Marilla nor Mrs. Rachel Lynde would ever let this happen.
But I grew up in a house with a sign on the door,
"Dull women have immaculate homes."
(This made me suspicious of L----'s mom.)
But I always planned to keep my floors swept
My pantry ready for guests. These days,
I vacuum once a week. You say that like I should be proud of you (I am)
But Anne broke the willow-ware plate
The critics say: a metaphor for breaking conventional form
I say: maybe housework isn't all it's cracked up to be
