Haiku Poem – 春の大掃除

cans of paint
dry faster by kitty litter
spring cleaning

(Ben version)
おおそうじ てきせつ に しょり ペンキかん

(Michiko version)
ペンキかん ねこずな まぜて はいきぶつ

I just started spring cleaning. I decided to begin in the garage. The previous owner of my house left about twenty cans of paint. The paint is all about five years old. So, the paint is past the expiration date. In addition, the colors were all ugly colors like bright yellow, purple and orange. Therefore, I decided to throw them all out. Local rules require drying out the paint before throwing it in the trash. So, I went to the store and bought kitty litter. Then, I mixed the kitty litter into the paint. This made the paint dry much faster so that I could dispose of it properly.
