Behind the Shower Curtain

Behind the Shower Curtain

By Elton Camp

Paranoid people just have to see
Behind the curtain before they pee

For about their greatest scare
Is a murderer lurking back there

They pull the curtain back for a peek
And only then do they dare take a leak

But I have to wonder what they’d do
If their fear should prove to be true

There stands a wild man with a knife
Prepared and eager to end their life

At least it’s happy that they’d die
Knowing their fears were no lie

Those who, “You’re paranoid,” said
Will know better once they’re dead

    What a fun comment! Hitchcock has embedded that image into our collective consciousness. Elton
