Behold, A Bathroom!

When most people think of the bathroom,
bodily funtions come to mind.
But alas, it is more then just a place
for one to puke, piss, or...deficate! !
Solace can be sought,
and time given to thought,
when one takes a load off in the bathroom.
One of the greatest things
of which I have heard
came to the unlikely genius
as he dropped a turd!
As a matter of fact,
the bathroom's where I'm at
as I write in attempt to entertain you.
Who needs a library when I've got
a book, a newspaper,
toothpaste or aspirin container,
and my own imagination to go to new worlds.
Indeed, many a time in thought I've been lost
because the call of nature did not allow my legs crossed,
and I had to pay visit to
'The Little Girl's Room'.
So the next time you're bored
or have some thinking to do,
remember a place less adored.
Behold, a bathroom!

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
