A Poem on the Bath’s Broken Promises

Thankful Thursday: I am thankful for showers, even though my shower sucks and my super just avoids fixing it. Showers are way better than baths- I wrote a poem below all about how baths are dumb.

(This poem does not rhyme, btw, so DONT EXPECT IT TO.)

How can you truly get clean in a bath
when the dirt doesn't go anywhere at all?
You can't even get the soap off of you
And besides that, baths are boring

I used to take baths in high school
I even used candles
and tried to read,
Because I saw it in the movies
and thought it might give me a luxurious life
like the people who bathed in those various forms of media.
But
Alas
It was just boring.
And I don't even think I got clean
because, again, the dirt doesn’t go anywhere,
and the bubbles were never as awesome
and i needed to take a shower afterwards to clean my hair, anyway

Since then 
I have not taken any baths
On Purpose,
because they are lame.

But even if I wanted to, I couldn't 
because my tub is never clean.
And there is no way in hell I am going to clean the tub just to sit around pointlessly in it


The end
