Getting a lot of poetic miles out of my slip and fall in the bathtub.
In the flick of an eye she went down.
In the tub, there's the rub, cracked her crown.
Lying nude on her own,
broken foot and a hand,
she lay prone. With a groan
but with grit, tried to stand,
self em-bare-assed she rose like a clown.
