Shit. Excuse Expletive

 

Shit. Excuse expletive

Standing in the shower

Verse from heaven falls down

Gem. A little flower

 

Shit. Excuse expletive

Rubbing bod with soap

Hanging on to flower

Tied it with a rope

 

Shit. Excuse expletive

Hopping out the shower

Hanging on so preciously

To my little flower

 

Shit. Excuse expletive

Towelling outer/unner

Now where's my little flower ?

Shit. She's done a runner

I did eventually capture my little runaway. She's now captured in a poem. No escape.

Poetry for effect and effective for that reason Don. Bit too clever for me, but a cross dresser waving a knife would have set it on fire. Sorry, can't deal with showers any more.

When are we going to hear the little flower then Don? Hope it was a flower and not a weed in disguise. (lol)

It's interesting. I was saying shit to myself but apologising to you for having to read it. The line had a 'nice' ring to it, hence repeated, and left a continuing puzzle, the meaning of which only came to light in the last line reveal.

BTW A true story

This is creepy. I know people that go mental if you swear in their presence yet they say shit compulsively.
It's like the dichotomy of writing something over and over and apologising for it every time.
Nice.
