Crowded Tub

Rating: 3.1
There are too many kids in this tub
There are too many elbows to scrub
I just washed a behind that I'm sure wasn't mine
There are too many kids in this tub.

Sounds like he needs a bigger tub, but I wouldn't say that cause I don't want to rub. Silverstein was ingénues for imbuing so much in just a few lines.
