Bath Day!

April 16, 2010


I set off to the bookcase,
I went and picked up Plath;
it was Wendy Cope I wanted
for reading in the bath.

If I’d gone back to the bookcase,
and exchanged my Plath for Cope,
I shouldn’t have tried to drown myself
in a bath devoid of hope.

(Actually, I had a lovely bath and — for once — read absolutely nothing!)

    Hopelessly groping for Cope I coped in a bathful of soap.

    (Actually, I prefer your witty offering, Celia!)

      Though a bath with Ms Plath was more naff than a laff.

      (How did you get that smiley there?)

    Is true (though i do like a handful of her poems)!

    Smiley appeared by itself when I typed ; – )
    but without the spaces …
