lady across the way
does yoga everyday
gets her maid to clean the floor
and move the couch out of the way

through the window, sunshine gleaming
but she sees a spot that needs some cleaning
so she tells her maid to get it done
while she goes out for a run

returning home, she needs a rest
but not while the place still looks a mess
"i can't sleep like this" to the maid
"get the mop and the broom, or you won't get paid"

so she mopped and she swept
while the lady slept
and after the fire
her ashes she kept

and sprinkles them over dishes
with a glass of wine
to taste the lady's riches
her life once so divine
