A Lurker In The Men's Room

As I was sitting on the pot 
I felt a pair of eyes; 
I took a glance out through the slot 
And much to my surprise, 
There was a patch of blue out there 
I'd never seen before. 
I couldn't make out head or hair 
Or shoes upon the floor, 
But I could see (about chest high) 
What seemed to be a shirt. 
There's someone waiting just outside 
Which served to disconcert! 
I guessed he must have had to go 
(Of that, I could relate) 
But standing just outside the door 
Is not the place to wait. 
I wished he'd take a few steps back; 
My irritation grew. 
Had he no proper sense of tact? 
There's some things you don't do! 
And so I flushed, with half a mind 
To chide him for this gaffe. 
I opened up the door to find... 
Oh no! I had to laugh. 
When I emerged, there was no trace 
Of a man with urgent bowels; 
The blue was from the plastic case 
Dispensing paper towels.
