That Potent Urge -Gotta Go, Gotta Go Right NOW

I think no stimulus could be
as potent as the one to pee.
A feeling frequent and innate
is this - the urge to urinate.
It comes each day to everyone
at work, at play, or on the run.

It comes sometimes as home you drive,
and soon you're hoping to survive
the bursting of your inner dam
while sitting in a traffic jam.
Then down the street you drive distressed
with thighs together tightly pressed.
You wish so badly it would cease
and then you pray for sweet release.
And as you drive, you ache and ache
and curse that drink you had to take.
You want to speed, but big surprise -
a cop's behind you. Squeeze those thighs
to keep inside what wants to flow!
You do not dare to let it go.
Few impulses can so compare.
Oh, how you'd love a diaper there!

Then home at last, you do a dance.
You run while pulling down your pants.
And horror, if when once inside,
you find the bathroom occupied!
WEll, just be glad it's mountain dew
you're holding in, not number two!

    Absolutely hilarious. love it, love it, love it. This goes in my favorites. I've written a parody or two of Joyce Kilmers poem "Trees" That starts out "I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree" But this poem of yours is a priceless gem. Wow! What an awesome poem.

    What a dilemma. And so much more difficult to resolve for a woman. Which makes it so much funnier. Love it.-Red
