Down The Plughole

Down The Plughole

written by: Melanie Barrow


‘Stay clean-
It’s good hygiene’
Lessons from plagues long past
Lessons now re-learned fast

On a pedestal
Against the wall
Half-squeezed paste
Soap left to waste

Vanity on a shelf
Exfoliate yourself
Ultra firm, ultra lift
Those wrinkles shift

Grout the cracks
De-mist the facts
Of life wasted
Life not tasted

Total Immersion
Water a diversion
From those swirling thoughts
Another day fought

And won
So pull the plug out
Have fun!
