Down The Drain
larrylark

Being 90% water
 1
wrung out in our vests,
 2
it seems we could walk far and near.
 3
Camouflaged, clearly transparent,
 4
while crossing over lakes.
 5
Alarming the ducks, taking our time.
 6
Cackling in rhyme.
 7
 
 
Double wet underwear will share
 8
that shower of rain.
 9
Work up a head of steam,
 10
but be patient.
 11
Soon you will be walking on water,
 12
a feat much sought by the ancients.
 13
 
 
Bring a container and cork
 14
to bottle your steam
 15
and there you’ll have triple proof.
 16
A loofah free soaking cycle,
 17
tin bathed and tippling.
 18
You might even take a sip
 19
of that which sustains.
 20
 
 
What to do with excess?
 21
Poured down the drain.
 22
While the vest, thin as a mist ,
 23
carries only a gravy stain.

This is a very interesting philo poetic discourse you are indulging in Percysett. It is unfortunate that the only person who will probably read it is me, so i guess its a case of two lunatics being locked up in a room together.
