I Had a Shower Today.

I had a shower today,

In my life I regularly take them,

Whether I need them or not.

There are those special days,

The first one was at thirteen,

Reaching my teenage years.

Then there was twenty one,

The key of the door became mine.

Every birthday with a zero on the end,

Was special as well,

And a thorough shower was had.

Then there was the sixty fifth,

Where work was washed away.

And now there is today,

Another special day,

Where I will have another shower,

My seventieth shower.
