Poetry Corner: “Damn Goat Soap!”

Damn Goat Soap!

Having run out of the usual body wash
using goat soap instead and suddenly a burgeoning rash
the chest is itchy and on fire
I am perplexed and full of ire
I have perhaps eaten to many mussels and oysters in the past few days?
could be some flesh eating bacteria that will cut me down in my old age
but I have done an inventory of food and possible irritants
it is being eliminated to that damn goat soap
readers beware if you have sensitive skin you may suffer from goat soap rash
should I chuck my feta cheese in the trash?
should I go to the derm for a view?
I think not I am putting the blame on goat soap
don’t follow me if you have sensitive skin and be a dope
