Dust and Cobwebs
Cobwebs catching settling dust,
they save me much work.
Machinery showing rust,
a colorful quirk.
It’s all a total must.
It’s part of what is;
like a pie with a crust,
a soda with fizz.
One shouldn’t sweat the small stuff,
like a dust bunny under the bed,
or a golf ball in the rough.
They’re just cobwebs in one's head.
