The Bathtub Blues

Sitting in the bathtub soaking up the suds
Getting fresh and fancy to wear my clean, new duds.

Sitting in the bathtub Ė a refreshing great relief,
But, then rings the telephone; it causes me such grief!

Up from the bathtub, soaking wet and cold,
I run to the ringing phone; my mindís Ďbout to explode!

I leave my comfy bathtub for cold and chilly air.
My towel slips to the floor. My flesh is wet and bare.

If my telephone had eyes, I would shock the earth
Because Iím dressed in naked clothes just like my day of birth.

From the bathtub to the phone, I fumble all the way,
And, just as I reach the phone, the ringing goes away.

I gather up my towel and jump back in the tub.
The waterís cold; the bubblesí popped. I just have time to scrub.

I like phone calls from my friends. They make me wise and jolly.
But, phone calls while Iím in the tub are a nuisance and a folly!

Enjoyable light touch on a challenge we can never prepare for. Clever rhyme and consitent rhythm. Well done.

This is a fun whimsical little poem. I bet everyone can relate to rushing to the phone to get there just as it stops ringing. Fun story:)
