A Limerick about One of Life's Little Absurdities

I walked in this room with a goal

And piles of laundry to fold

But when I arrived

The thought left my mind

Now, three hours later, I scroll.


This limerick was an entry for Vocal's Ludicrous Limerick Challenge in March 2023. Thank you for reading!
