Bathrhyme!

I am as grey as a prawn

Swimming in the early dawn

A prawn before it’s cruelly cooked

Because live prawns are grey –

A point you may have overlooked,

I am as pink as a pink thing;

Maybe a piglet, or maybe a pig;

Something pink or pinkish,

Like Barbara Cartland’s wig.

Whatever I am,

The water was hot;

I added some cold

A little, not a lot;

And soaked for a while

Until I got out

Cleaner, no wiser;

No towel, no doubt.
