Pleeease dirty the mat!

You can step on the mat that lies across my floor.

Wipe your feet as you enter the door.

Don’t try to save me the washing,

‘Cos all it does is increase my mopping.

Don’t try to move it in line with the tiles,

It’s there at a slant for more coverage and that’s perfectly fine!

It’s there to take the dust off your feet,

And make my house easier to ‘keep’.

So pleeease dirty the mat that lies in your path,
It’s ok if it gets muddy, I can give it a bath.
