Bath Time

Bath Time

Every evening
around about five
I pinch my cellulose
to make sure I’m alive.

Long-ago-child 
last rings in my tub
now soaps up her own kids,
rub a dub dub.

Towels at attention,
the bathroom is dry
if I need a re-run
my daughter’s near-by.

    You are unique! (I know, I've said it before... but dammit it's true!) Wonderful cadence, rhyming and imagery... 'rub a dub dub' in a poem? Spectacular!! Love, Keith

    A wonderful 'pick-me-up', Kathy... ah, yes, a 'long-ago-child'... but I'm still fighting against leaving that 'realm'... Love, Terry

    You captured my attention with first stanza. Loved the whole poem. Great poem. And I loved the last two lines as well. I love poems with humor. They are so therapeutic.
