Do people close the bathroom door
When they’re at home alone?
If research has been done, I wonder
What results have shown.
The purpose of a fastened door’s
So privacy’s achieved;
Preventing someone’s barging in
Makes occupants relieved.
But what if no one else is there?
Then solitude’s assumed.
In secrecy, a person
May be emptied, bathed and groomed.
Yet certain habits are ingrained
From childhood days of youth
And breaking them is hard to do,
Plus sometimes seems uncouth.
So when I pay a visit
To perform a bathroom chore,
No matter if nobody’s home,
I always shut the door.
