The Weakest Housekeeping Link

He hated clutter as a young adult.
He only kept the necessary then.
But soon he fell in love, and the result
affected him of course. Soon after when
they married and he tried to keep things nice,
he learned his partner differed in regard
to cleaning house and shopping. She’ll buy twice
or even sevenfold, and won’t discard.

He made his case for spare. She wasn’t moved.
She smiled but said her priorities
were otherwise. Their rooms grew disimproved,
and pretty soon he stopped his pretty pleas.
He’s not about evolving into drudge.
Their home’s a mess. It’s meaningless to judge.
