Clear Fun - Poem by Willie Lou Shirley

Way back in the thirties
We had our Saturday fun
By taking our bath in a washtub
In water headed by the sun

We would double up in that old washtub
Mom. with Lifebuoy soap, would scrub us,
'til we squeaked
So we could get to Sunday School on time
And nobody ever peeked.
