The author's comments:
I often take really random ideas and make poetry out of them... I was washing my hands with a bar of soap when I came up with the inspiration for this. I was thinking about how things have changed over the years. We have switched from using bars of soap to bottles of liquid soap. Initially, I wanted this poem to be about the changes brought upon us by technology. Somehow, however, it transformed into a poem about something that sadly has been almost a constant for ages.
