Bah! I’m not scared of a little hot water!
I bravely begin turning the tap,
then wonder if I oughter.
Maybe this is all a big trap!
Or perhaps the sign says what it means,
and my confidence is grossly misplaced.
Perchance this water will require Marines
to wrest it down the drain with haste!
But it’s only hot water and I’m an adult,
and I have no fear of scalding!
So I continue the turn, expecting a burn
Instead what I get is a scolding!
