Hot Bath 2011

Hot Bath

 

I’m mean;

I’m super economic;

I’m environmentally aware.

More:

Conscientious,

I save energy wherever…

(It is wrong to waste it).

Yet,

There is a sin,

One luxury, one trap

Straight from the tap,

Filled to the top:

A bath at night

By candlelight;

A cat,

His walking act

Along the edge

Defying laws

Because

He doesn’t care;

The temperature,

The narrow ledge,

His tail dripping.

Dearest reader, don’t begrudge

This one indulgence.
