Ode to the Custodian
Mops, brooms and feather dusters
Are tools used by these cleaning busters.
They empty our trash and recycle each night
They make our hallways clean and bright.
Buffers, vacuums and scrubbers too
Help the custodians clean for you.
Disinfectant’s a must, smells of green pine
That makes our stainless fixtures shine.
Custodians polish both brass and wood
To keep the furnishings looking good.
They vacuum the carpets and wax the floors
They wash the windows and the glass doors.
So when you leave the office each night
Remember the staff that is out of sight.
The custodian is working while you’re asleep
Scrubbing, dusting and gathering a heap
Of papers you placed in the recycle bin
Think of the custodian and give a grin
To those keeping the work place clean for you
Without the custodian, what would you do?
