Cleaning House

Contrary humans sometimes take a bath,
a ritual to appease a god’s wrath.
A bird pokes and prods between its feathers
to get rid of the dirt all together[s].
The normally docile dog finds a stream,
playing patty-cake in the mud his dream…
My black cat kicks and digs at his litter.
When trying to stay clean he’s no quitter.
The “Earth’s” sins are washed away by the rain.
Certain concepts keep us mere humans sane.
