0227 Soap Opera - Poem by Michael Shepherd

The Hebrew language
has such sacred power
that you shouldn't sing it
in the bath or shower.

This compassionate concession:
you're still allowed to hum
any music that you fancy
while you're soaping your, er, tum.

Though some would say with Mendelssohn -
that a 'song without words'
is the bathroom equivalent
of a **** without ****s
