The Sad Story of the Welcome Mat

The welcome mat on the floor
it says the nicest things
its welcoming and true

you can tell it your secrets
and make you feel joy
so what do you do?

you step on it
walk all over its face
leaving your footprints of dirt

and when it becomes to dirty
you take it out and beat it
releasing all your anger and hurt

so this is the ode to the welcome mat
for it is strong yet sings sad songs
and takes all our abuse

it can’t keep feeling clean
for it has took this for years
it’s accustomed to being used

how do we thank the welcome mat
for listening to our tears
we step all over its face

and when the dirt gets to much
and the beatings won’t work anymore
its time for it to be replaced
