I don't think I got this one. Since the challenge is over: What was it about?

Hey, Solan.

The challenge isn't over, if you still want to give it a try.

To figure out the challenge, pay special attention to the first and last words of each line.

I had something here that might have blown Julie's challenge (although with her liberal hint, I doubt it). Anyhow, now I understand the challenge and will see what I can do.

Ton Of Washing

Ton of clothes piled up, add
Damsel Ann in distress and Jeffer's
Son comes to the rescue! Maddy's
Son picks up some clothes, packing the common
Row of washers - but then Jack's
Son comes over with a burr
In his butt, spoiling to fight with Harry's
Son! Dear damsel grabs Jack's son by the tail -
Or seat of his pants, and with a sharp rebuke
Ann and her Mum chase them all away, and scurry
Gannet-like back to their washing.

Enough, already!

Hellloooo Julie?! Where are you? Did my Ton of Washing do okay? I've never done a challenge before, and without your hint I doubt that I could have figured it out. If no one else is going to try this maybe others would like another hint or an explanation of the challenge.

Thanks,
Lessandra

Chinese puzzle box from my
fingers tapping.
Open-
no, closed,
no, broken.
Hiding naked,
revealing all and nothing
Am I seen or the observing?
Here goes Alice again, down
down
the rabbit-hole, emerging with
true falsehoods.
Beauties and beasties
we
mainline our drug of choice,
the mind.
