Is it really such a good idea,
Saving water, showering with a friend?
My experience, over many a year,
Are its dangers. If you have to bend
For soap and so expose your rear,
The other party may well extend,
Not the helping hand of friendship here,
But that other body part that seeks to blend
With yours. May I advise, while I have your ear,
Better share a bath, sitting end to end.
There’s more economy of water. That’s clear.
And fewer of those offers, and refusals which offend.
