Ain’t Nothin Easy In This World
These floors ain’t nothin’ but work and time. I been cleaning ‘em now for goin’ on forty years, and they ‘aint never stayed clean. Don’t hardly matter to no one else that I been on my knees scrubbin’ while people doin’ their business. Important things be happenin here, and that only be a lot of dirt for me to clean. My kids aren’t wearin’ nuthin fancy, but they be gettin’ a better future than I ever had, because they gettin’ college educated. These floors may never look shiny or new again, but they done made all the difference.
