On Writing Poems In The Bathroom Stall - Poem by Chuck Audette

writing a poem
while in the john
damn it!
that didn't take long.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Again I hide
to pen a short one
and flushed with pride
I'm already done
* * * * * * * * * * * * * *
thought I would write
while sitting here
but my paper is quite
used up, I fear
* * * * * * * * * * * * * *
the quips that I read
here on these walls
somehow succeed
where my 'effort' falls
* * * * * * * * * * * * * *
this time - no
I don't have to go
(and I do believe
we're both relieved)
* * * * * * * * * * * * * *
(Inspired by the classic, anonymous poem :)

Here I sit, broken-hearted
tried to shit, but only farted

    What Mike said. If I ever see a true bathroom witticism, I'll know it's your 'work'. Wait - I'd have to hit the men's room for that pleasure, wouldn't I? ! (I've actually done that without my contacts, at least once - nothing funny, alas.) Go, pal! Est : ] (Report) Reply

    The dictionary will now have to add a new definition for the word 'effort.' (Report) Reply

    Well, you threatened to do it and here it is. As usual from you Mr A, very witty stuff that's made me giggle and want to go and look up dirty words in the dictionary. Have a 10.
