CLEAN AS A BEAN!

Clean as a bean!

Fresh washed
with clearest water. . .

So crisp!
So green!–

It starts with you. . .
to spread the washing thrust
that makes
the world
as clean. . .

Begin with you,
yourself. . .

Then all that’s near:
Your floor,
your shelf. . .

And then,
reach out
and lend yourself,
to others
in whatever ways
that you can help. . .

So, then,
before we’ve scarce had time
to admire all the clean
where we’ve removed
the dust and dirt and grime,

We’ll be to the point
where can be seen
a world equally as clean
as that freshly washed
green bean.
