Do poets immerse themselves in verse?
Do dentists bathe in teeth?
Does the innkeeper’s wife wash in water of life?
Does swag rain down on the thief?
Does the land-owning ilk bath daily in milk?
Do bakers recline in dough?
Does the writer of prose get full stops up his nose?
Do the elderly wash really slow?
Does the lumberjack soak in the sap of the oak?
Do artists in sepia sit?
Do EastEnders blokes use a gallon of soap?
And does Parliament shower in s**t?
