Bathtime Lamentations

AAAWW! Why must I take a bath today? I just went swimming yesterday! Besides I promised my friend Wade, that at this time we’d go out and play. FINE! I’ll take a bath though it’s not fair, but don’t expect me to wash my hair, That’s why I took extra special care To have it cut so short it’s hardly there! ARGHH! I beseech you then oh, mother dear, to use the stuff that says no tears. You know blindness is one of my greatest fears and please don’t scrub behind my ears! HEY! Don’t think because I have my toys and occasionally there is a splashing noise, that bath time is something to be enjoyed by army men and their little boys. LOOK! I’m only doing what must be done for every soldier and each tiny gun to clean them up one by one so they’ll be ready when the big one comes. WELL... I guess I could stay a little while here in the warm waters of the deep dark Nile to wage war on my rubber crocodile. Just tell Wade I’ll call him after while.
