Clearly, she holds no ardor for most housewifely tasks,
and so declines to provide help if anybody asks.

Requests for her assistance will be to no avail.
She cannot wash the dishes, for she might chip a nail.

She will not soil her pretty hands with ordinary work.
She cannot pot a potted plant or set coffee to perk.
The observance of perfection is clearly her main aim—
her ardor for maintaining it the purpose of the game.


Words for the day are observance, clearly, ardor, soil.
