Renowned Tanners

Xenarchus told us in the 1st
Whores would strip and bathe

In 10th century Britain
Pale showed you could afford
To stay at home and not out

Niels Finsen, the benifactor of the coveted
Nobel Prize for the benifit
of sunlight bathing

A tan is a sign
Of health and welath

Coco C circa 1923
Had been on her yacht
In summer

The look caught on
and since
We have 'em all year round

But not in Iran
Women can't do it there

  1. Only a tanned person (or someone who has known to be) would be so interested in the skin to turn what happens on the beach into verse.
