Nature's Call


I stopped my ride beside the road
Stepped down with key off from board!
Its nothing, to finish a simple deed
But I really need some place to pee!

I'm holding for a long time, you see,
I guess I was lot more than busy!
To attend the nature's call to me,
But now insist! To let it go free!

I turn my head sideways to see,
Will there be a place for me to relieve?
Nearby shadows are calm I believe,
Its time to start the watering spree!

Trash can is fine? Or will it give worry?
Or should I do behind the mango tree?
I'm jumping up and down the street,
As irritation gets to a high degree!

Feeling like rescued from trouble as I pee
Thanking myself, feeling good with a glee
I'm satisfied! As I have paid a penalty
Thinking of good times and planned to retreat!

As I reach my fly to finish in hurry,
A black eyed tomcat looks in eerie!
Wondering It'd jump suddenly at me,
Stopped my 'Pump House' which worked heavenly!

I turned back, saw a cop smiling at me!
With mustache and belly, just too scary!
First thought to bribe him! How damn silly!
I thought for a sec and started to flee!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

A funny write. One of my first ones. Inspired from a true incident where I was the protagonist. Just for laughs! ! (Proudly stole the relevance from Dinesh sir's recent jokes)

    This is a nice diversion Aswath! Quite interestingly presented! As you feel relieved, we too feel relieved! Holding it is not good for health... you know! But as Kavya has said, I have read it before! So you are good at humour too! (Report) Reply

    @Dinesh Sir: Yeah why not! I'm certainly against various publicity stunts especially like the one mentioned above. That horrific day, I learnt a valuable lesson, never to neglect the nature's call. Ofcourse I failed to write a disclaimer and this write to be treated as funny and as a joke only. I believe I have taken necessary precautions and editing to suit this to all age group without gender bias!

    @Shahzia Didi: If comments had a greater influence on me, I would have written a new poem instead of posting an old one. Wouldn't I? (Report) Reply

    .... And yet another death poem is in your mind! Be dynamic Aswath for a little longer and go for a subdued outlook at these fantasised woes queuing up somewhere. About turn! (Report) Reply

    Yeah....Some funny ones coming your way....Good...The way you have written is simply beautiful..

    I start typing poem with funny ones but by the time it reaches the finishing point, something unexpected happens in my head and my hand sense it and starts typing into some painful ones.... (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
