Scheisse - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

Speeding, passing,
in the dark, cop car
looking over.....
Scheisse.

Steamy sheets,
calling her name,
wrong one it was,
oh what a shame......
Scheisse.

Caught in public
belt malfunctioned,
pants down vision........
Scheisse.

Montezuma
gives you bugs
gut-bless wonders
what comes out........
Scheisse.

In the barn,
cow is calling,
one wrong step........
Scheisse

Many dogs
in the park
running much
sitting some........
Scheisse.

Too excited
teenage sex
only seconds.........
Scheisse.

Word itself
gender-tied
female 'die'........
Scheisse.
