Bath time – A poem by Stegzy Gnomepants

Turn the tap on
Let the water out
Put the plug in
It’s too hot so shout

Wait for the tub
To fill to half
Then add the cold
It’s time for your bath

Mix in the bubbles
Ready the flannel
But don’t lean to hard
On the baths side panel

In with the toe
Is it too hot?
Did you take off your sock?
No! I thought not

Strip to your skin
Step into the bath
Clean behind your ears
Splish splash and laugh

And when it’s gone cold
And you’re wrinkled like a prune
Its time to get out
Until your next bath in June

Ah thank you

Once, long ago, I wrote frequently on Livejournal. I then moved to Blogspot, where I discovered that blogging requires an audience. So I moved back to LJ. Then over to Dreamwidth, back to LJ, up the road of self hosting with Muckybadger before giving up entirely and moving over to Wordpress. It was at that moment I decided I would spread my compostual nonsense simultaneously across the blogosphere like some rancid margarine. And so here I am. I am a badger. But then I'm not really a badger. I am a human. With badger like tendencies. I am a writer, a film producer and a social commentator. I am available for Breakfast TV shows, documentaries and chats in the pub with journalists where I am more than qualified enough to talk confidently about absolute shite and bollocks.
