About the poet
Gavin Ewart was born in London in 1916, of Scottish descent. He was educated at Wellington...
Miss Twye was soaping her breasts in the bath
When she heard behind her a meaning laugh
And to her amazement she discovered
A Wicked man in the bathroom cupboard.
from 'The Collected Ewart', Century New Editions, 1982
