On The Loo - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

War von Erfolg hier Dein Bemueh'n
dann darfst Du auch die Kette ziehn.
Mach's Fenster auf, lass Luft herein
der Naechste wird Dir dankbar sein.

And if your stay was a success
you need to clean this solid mess
open window, pull the chain
the air will soon return to plain.

The next one who sits on this throne
as usual, will be all alone,
his predecessor needs some praise
for letting out this fragrant haze

so use some paper and remember
that even in a cold December
the body needs its pure O-2
especially inside the loo.

Translated and modified from an old German
wittyism, author unknown.
