How to avoid getting sick at public restrooms. Custodian bad habits uncovered.

My poem:

"The Lazy Custodian"

The lazy custodian
Sits down on a chair,
After ten minutes working
He is up for a break.

Two naps in the closet,
One nap in his truck,
Ten cigarette breaks,
Three hours of lunch.

There's mice in the kitchen,
On his shoe, there's mold.
A roach infestation,
He hasn't yet caught.

He faints at the thought
Of sweeping the stairs,
And he hasn't dusted
For three years straight.

He thinks he is the best
Custodian he knows.
That's why in his closet,
Filth covers the floor.

He jumps from the chair,
His boss woke him up.
I swear that I am sick!
You are fired, go home!

Thank you for reading!
Have a great day :)
