Bottom Line (Limerick) - Poem by Kelly Kurt

Reaching around from the back to wipe
Pulling from front to rear with a swipe
But my shoulder's too tight
So I can't do it ‘right'
And I clean in reverse, what's the hype?

Topic(s) of this poem: life

Form: Limerick

    i arrived here after reading Brian Mayo's poem (see below) on his site. he gave you credit for inspiration.

    i too have toilet poems, but luckily my shoulders still work pretty well. i have sometimes thought about how inconvenient it would be if i lost my wiping arm, OR both arms. i might take the bridge! ! or stop eating.

    bri :) nice advice from your poem. thanks.

    The butt-wipe requires finesse
    If it's to be deemed a success
    One slip of the pinky,
    Things get real stinky
    And turn in to an ungodly mess.

    What is handy, just do it..... there is no hard and fast rule as how to do something......! Accomplishing is more important than how one accomplishes! Interesting! (Report) Reply

    A different kind of toilet humor. : -)

    Sometimes life appears a suit made by an untrained tailor and wearing this suit we become a fun. (Report) Reply

    That is the outfit I prefer to wear. : -)
    Thanks, Akhtar

    Your poesy does not lack the humour..A great advantage.But again the the same problem as that with the jokes.That last verse 'deprives' me of the big laugh. (Report) Reply

    The lack of a big punch-line, I thought, would be offset by the theme itself
