I Had A Shave


I had a shave this morning
As I do most every day
I always have the same routine
I know of no other way
But today, for some strange reason
Something must have gone wrong
Could it be while I was showering
I sang a stupid song
Have I upset an unknown God?
Who controls songs in the shower
And now he's getting back at me
At this very late hour
My stubble is now growing
And I need to scratch it hard
I think the God is grinning
I think he's marked my card.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
