Gasses - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

He had released a bit of gas
and felt a need to scratch his ass.
He was in public and he stank,
considered it a youthful prank.

The English have a thing that states
it's better out than in for mates.
And on a tram, to beat the static
it can be rather aromatic.

So, let us celebrate the bang
it beats the well-known hunger pang.
Foul gasses that cause misery
will fade away once they are free.

    Ecsquisit Herbert. The English, who treat this sort of thing in a tight-arsed manner, could not have produce an ode to the fart. Or even seen the benefit, irrespective of their 'better out than in' policy. (Report) Reply
