to Emily Jr., who is brilliant, and who hand-crafted me some soap.

soap is the thing

soap is the thing

Soap is the thing that lathers
And froths upon your skin,
And rinses clear–without the which,
You’d be a dirtykin.

And bubbling in the bath is heard,
And filthy be the scene
That could abash the little shard
That kept so many clean.

I’ve seen it labor recklessly
To vanquish reeking pong;
Yet, always, effervescently
It toils until it’s gone.
