Spare A Thought For Cleaners

Spare a thought for cleaners
As you go about your day.
We're the unsung heroes,
Who clean your mess away!
We empty all the rubbish,
And do our best to clean,
As we fly around the classrooms,
With a can of Mr Sheen!

The filth I clean in toilets,
Makes my stomach churn!
Why can't kids just flush it?
Will they ever learn? 
There's bogeys on the mirrors!
And wee all on the floor!
The smell is overwhelming,
As I clean it up once more!

We're often viewed as worthless 
As the lowest of the low!
Just come and work in my shoes,
And then you'd really know!
So spare a thought for cleaners,
As you go about your day,
You'd all be lost without us,
To clean your mess away!...
