BATH TIME BLUES
Home from football, I was soaked in sweat
Longing to disrobe, get under shower jet
Took off all my clothes, clean undies were set
Walk to the bathroom…my wife said “Not yet”.
She’d been to “keep-fat” and was sweating as well
Taps already flowing, her bath it did swell
I tried to explain I was ready for ablution
Alas my wife had alternative solution.
I say “Tuesday is MY night for getting wet”
“Oh well, I’m very sorry!” was the answer I met
In teacher’s voice said “When I’m done…
……….you can jump in and wash your bum”.
Watched her face, anticipating joke
All I received was a whimsical poke
Fingers she used in effecting the prod
Convert to a signal meaning “Sling it, sod”.
I took exception to this treatment so mean
At this point my daughter entered the scene
“Mum, I’ll have that bath after you…
…Dad can have his shower when I’ve had my poo”.
You may conclude that I was being bullied
Don’t want family name to be sullied
I tell this story with acknowledging smile
Truth is…respect due……..I like their style!
