The End of the World

I was leaning against the washbasin chatting to my sister who was taking a bath
She was humming and occasionally singing ditties from advertisements on television
I found her recreation a little irritating but did not say anything as the world was due to end at ten to five
My sister normally took baths in the evening but as the world was going to end had decided to bring this one forward
Her most irritating song was one associated with a Dutch advocaat
At ten to five a rook shit on the bathroom window and flew away with a grin hidden within its features
The world had survived and to celebrate I handed my sister our best loved towel and left her to dry herself off
She had already planned her next bath for Thursday evening at half past eight
I told her that I would not be in attendance as I was preparing my sermons for the coming weeks
