bath

n. A kind of mystic ceremony substituted for religious worship, with what spiritual efficacy has not been determined.


The man who taketh a steam bath
He loseth all the skin he hath,
And, for he's boiled a brilliant red,
Thinketh to cleanliness he's wed,
Forgetting that his lungs he's soiling
With dirty vapors of the boiling.
Richard Gwow
