The Prayer of the Boiling Dish Cloths

Oh Lord and Master Housekeeper,

Soak me in your sudsy brine.
Loosen the grease that saturates my fibres
and prevents absorption of your solvent.
Stir and boil, agitate, palpitate,
Bend over the vapours
till this stovetop baptism makes me clean.
Then wring me, and fling me on the line,
dripping pure
and ready for service.
