Shower the People

Celebrities, and others, claim a fundamental hygiene task is optional.

What’s your shower schedule?
Have you made yourself a pledge you’ll
stage an every-day toilette
or do you sometimes say, “Not yet”?

Seems like many who are famous
think they have the right to shame us
if we feel baths should be daily
so our skin won’t get all scaly.

Those who skip say there’s no harm; it’s
once a day for crotch and armpits,
but that otherwise it’s risible
unless dirt is clearly visible.

We’ve heard cleanliness is godly,
yet these people think, quite oddly,
that it won’t impact my sniffer – this
choice to live life sudoriferous.
