doing a shirt (steam)

lay the collar smooth and flat
crease it in the centre
steam

sleeves left and right
straighten out the wrinkles
then steam

hook each shoulder on the taper
of the ironing board and steam them

follow from the buttonholes
around the back and to the buttons
use steam

drape it on the hanger change the channel
sip a cold cuppa
no steam

wander to the kitchen break a dirty job
to set the kettle on
steam
