The Green Battle

    I just took a bath,
I feel so squeaky clean.
But, when I looked in the tub,
there was a lime green ring.
"Where did this come from?
Why is this green ring here,"
echoed in my mind trapped between my ears.
So I took a white wash rag and gave the tub a scrub,
the drain had a sound as the water went glub, glub, glub.
The green ring was gone and the tub was now so clean,
but, the wash rag I had used was now all soaking in lime green.
I took the wash cloth to my washer and gave it a toss in,
I set it on a cycle with an extra wash and spin.
I poured in the soap and some fabric softener too,
and thought to myself, "The green will be all through."
The washer started filling and ran the cycles fine,
but when I opened the lid there was a lime green line.
Now my mind was boiling from the lime green curse,
little did I know, it would soon get worse.
I ran back to the bathroom and grabbed a new wash cloth,
but, it was almost all gone it had been eaten by a moth.
I went to the store to get some moth balls there,
but, there were not any on the shelves where I did stare.
I asked a clerk about moth balls he gave me a strange look,
he said, "We do not stock them," and I looked at him and shook.
I went back to my home with moths flying in the air,
mocking within my house without a single care.
I started swatting and mashing
    every moth I was smashing,
they were oozing under my hand and fingers.
But, now there's pain that still lingers
    in my mind from what I soon did see,
when I looked, lime green was all over me!
I went to the bathroom sink and scrubbed the lime green ooze away,
soap and water went down the drain but a lime green ring did stay.
I screamed and yelled and laughed and cried,
until my feelings did subside.
I went to the fridge and reached for a beer,
and oh my God my greatest fear soon came near.
When I took that first cold drink
    from the bottle near the sink.
The beer! It had the foulest taste
    I spit it in the sink without haste!
Then dumped the rest down the drain,
and a lime green ring did remain...

Now I was at my wit's end
    and the lime green ring seemed to win,
is it my foe or is it my friend?
Why does it show again and again?
