On Maintaining an Uncongested Throne

A Poem by JayG

Help for the modern toilet.


Three shots to the pot

Before you squat

Is a very strong suggestion.


It greases the way

And limits the stay

Of a most unpleasant congestion.


But should soaping fail

Don’t reach for the pail

The plunger’s under the sink.


A difficult task

It takes a good blast

But it does get rid of the stink.

For fun...to show that I'm not a poet, either.

Pooping is a life saver. So its as important as anything else one does in life, if not more. So why not do it with a flair and elevate pooping to an art? I love this poem because its creative , In Your Face and better than those wishy washy routine love poems I write :)

I found it amusing. :) a bit of tongue in cheek toilet humor never hurt anyone. I loved your war poem on your blog.

mmm, actually everything has its place in life. I do a lot of performance poetry. I could see a piece like this as the opener in a 10 or 15 minute reading. Its funny, it has a saving grace. One thing I am confused about is the use of the word congestion in the second stanza. I think your using it like traffic is congested, but think digestion is funnier.

Ummmm...wow, you're really not a poet. Not much else I can say.
