--Marriage, My Friends, is Like a Hot Bath--

Marriage, my friends, is like a hot bath --
It looks and it feels so inviting.
You can't wait to soak from your head to your toes
since it looks to be warm and exciting!
You're naked, my friends, and the bubbles entice
as you yearn for that warm cozy feeling...
of water so hot that it makes you feel nice
as it sends your head off to the ceiling!

But when you get in it, it isn't so hot --
in fact the hot wears off quite quickly!
And if you stay in it too long, my dear friends,
you'll find that it makes you feel sickly.
The water sits there in the bath while you soak
and the soap suds with magnet attractions
grab dirt and debris that will sit on the top
of the surface and wait for reactions....

Your skin can break out if you stay there too long
while the water stagnates like a sewer.
You'll lie there and wonder if you can get out
and you'll want a hot bath that's much newer.
Yep, marriage, my friends, is a bath in the tub
and you'd better think twice while it's running...
'cause if you decide to jump in and to soak,
you'll find the hot water quite cunning.

When thinking of marriage, please think of your bath
and think twice 'fore heading for soaking.
'Cause marriage, I tell you, is like a hot bath.
It ain't all that hot! I ain't joking!

Sounds like you got out justin thyme.  But, you know you never know till you soaked awhile...myself, I like a quick shower.  

Seriously, this is very sad, and I've been there so I know what you mean, and besides all that, it's written well.

I took a warm shower when I first got out,
but it didn't do really much good.
There was stagnant water afloat in the tub
and it didn't drain how that it should.
I quick got the plunger and plunged with my might
but the water, it just wouldn't drain.
I guess that next time I will shower instead,
or simply stay out in the rain.

Why Justin my friend
there you go again
spouting right off like a faucet

For some it might seem
an impossible dream
and they just give up and do toss it

But I'm here to say
there are some who will stay
I like to think they know better

They live out their lives
put the gear-box in drive
and don't seem to mind a few fetters

I never talked of fetters.
I never spoke of rope.
I only said a bath is hot
at first, when there is soap.
But when the soap has bubbled,
you quickly lose its hold,
then all you find that you have left
is bath water that's cold.

I don't know what you speak of Moose.
I think you are insane.
It was a bath I spoke about...
how could I be more plain?

I am a firm believer of a nice shared hot bath
but when it gets cold and icky --
and I have tried to keep the water hot
I like to jump out of the pot into
the fire --)

It's a great poem Justin ---)
Hope you find what you are dreamin'
takes two to work out problems, and
if they don't get worked out, the
darn problems play follow the leader

Marriage can be like a sauna
'Specially if you picked an iguana
Or just like a bath in burning fat
If you're stuck in there with a rat.
Marriage can be like a real cesspool
If you chose to share it with a fool
Or like a dip in a pirahna pond
Or quicksand or lava something beyond.

But if you share it with the right one
It's a bath filled with joy that will never be done
In a tub full of honey and everything nice
And a shower of good fortune that carries no price
So, if you are drowning, before you say "GLUB!"
Blame your selection but don't blame the tub!

Well Angel is laughing! I'm glad of that!
This poem was a little dumb joke!
You all are so serious here tonight!
All sensitive kinda folk!

Right now I'd like to take a bath
but the bathtub's on the blink.
It's backing up fast from the john on the right
and some more from the kitchen sink.

So, what can I do but laugh outloud
and write a bathtub verse.
You guys are way too serious
and my drain is getting worse!

When the plumber gets here, I guess I'll be back
to see if some people can grin.
And when he is through, what else can I do?
But take a cold shower again.

I think it's time
for a warm compress
placed just so
upon your chest

a nice back rub
and then we'll see
just how funny
you want to be

Cause while I was crying
for your plight
all your tub needed
was dynamite

So, enough jesting, Justin!!

Be nice to my friend, Justin, please! She suffers from multiple personality disorder.  And not only that, there's a major plumbing problem and a dissolved marriage and there's nowhere for the rubbish to go. Thank you.

Marriage is:

A pile of dirty dishes
and a yard that always needs to be mowed...

Romance is:

Doing them without asking/being axed...and without complaining....

Very caustic suds here Jusin... ;-)

My house smells like a cesspool.
I think I've gone insane.
This backed up mess is very rude
and eating out my brain.
I have some personalities
to quickly take my place.
I'm glad they're here
because, my friends,
they'll be my saving grace.

One thing I know 'bout marriage
is it's an institute
and that's a fact, you know, my friends,
a fact you can't refute.
And if the plumber doesn't show
to fix these the stopped up drain,
I think I'll be back in the 'stute
(the other one), insane.

okay I have a remedy
cause I've been there before
you get your keys and take yourself
to the good old hardware store.

You buy a plumber's helper
that fits right on your hose
and stick it in the pipe, you see,
way down inside it goes.

Then just turn on the water
and listen to it purrrr
and if this doesn't work for you
then all I can say is grrrrr.

I used to have a hot bath,
it once fit quite well,
but then I suffered it's rath
and went down drain hell.

I've done everything in my power,
to stand tall once again,
and now I just take showers,
singing alleluja and amen!

once upon a time
lived a lady fair
men were stood in line
to wash her golden hair

one day into her tub
a handsome stranger plopped
soon she was fixing his grub
the chivalry was dropped

he whined and wanted
cried and cajoled
her love he daunted
as her heart grew cold

no more strangers in this tub!
no more lies will I be told!
no more shoulders will I rub!
back to nights alone and cold!

moral of this tale you see
truth be told it's not too hard
when sharing tubs so easily
keep an eye out for sharks!

the lesson here to learn is this
when hot baths turn to cold
a plumber's helper would be nice
at least that's what i'm told
but i'm a lady single who
will say i recommend
that it would be preferable
to shower with a friend

And grease Justin A Minute
Mr. Clean will clean your marriage out
And everything that's in it....

Mr Clean.. Mr. Clean... Mr. Clean......
