Will you comment on another childhood interlude please?

It was to others, just a bathtub

two children chased down by mother

for the daily rub and scrub,

but to us left alone to play

it was entirely something else

we used as our way to stray

"Let's make this our grand, sailing ship

we'll travel away to our own adventures

in and out we will easily slip."

We didn't know any nautical terms

like, jibs, and foresails, and such

even our own jargon could never be confirmed.

We wandered over every sea, violent and calm

adding, subtracting more bubble stuff

Oh the Islands rising, became our soothing balm.

Time spent after, giggling, drying

asked, "Where did you all go this time?"

"Everywhere." There was no point in lying.
