Maids

We called our first maid Jane.
I don’t remember what her name was, but we called her Jane.
She wasn’t a very good maid, so we replaced her.
We called that maid Jane, too.
As the family grew, we hired more maids.
We called all of our maids Jane.
It didn’t matter which maid came, as long as one came to do what we wanted or needed.
The maids called us Master or Miss.
It didn’t matter, really.
Divorces and deaths, births and marriages.
We’re all the same to them, in the end.
It’s just a job to do.
