Broad is the gate and wide the path, that leads a man to his daily bath.
But e’er you spend that shining hour, with sponge and soap and sluice and shower.
Remember whoso e'er you be, to shut the door and turn the key.
I had a friend, a friend no more, he failed to lock his bathroom door.
A maiden aunt of his one day, came in as half submerged he lay.
She failed to notice nephew John but turned the boiling water on.
He had no time or even scope, to camouflage himself with soap.
He gave a yell and flung aside, the sponge ‘neath which he sought to hide.
It fell to earth I know not where, he beat his breast in his despair.
And then like Venus from the foam, he sprang to view and rushed for home.
Hi aunt fell fainting to the ground. Poor soul, they never brought her round.
She died intestate in her prime, the victim of another’s crime.
And John can never quite forget, how by some breach of etiquette.
He lost in one fell swoop or plunge, His aunt, his honour and his sponge!

Exactly how did his aunt die?

From choking on the sponge?     

 From the shock of finding John in the tub? 

From boiling water?

 

It has never been clear to me, exactly what the cause of death was.

If ANY of my opinions were actually HUMBLE, it would be my humble opinion that any woman who dies from the shock of seeing a naked man, has led too sheltered a life.
