The Toilet

                                     At times my words feel like turds
                                      In a forever flushing toilet of life
                                      Some days after releasing them
                                      My mind still  doesn't  feel  right
                                      Butt  wiped onto  paper they go
                                      Then typed into this toilet of life
                                      As  they spin  around  the  bowl
                                  I notice something doesn't smell right
                                           It must be time to clean
                                             This forever flushing
                                                  Toilet of life 
                                                   Allowing me
                                                     Words of
                                                     Freshness 
                                                 And new turds 
                                              To flow with delight

    that is very funny Dan I would never expect the images of swirly words from your writes... Lol.. Now I have this image on my mind.. Like a mesmerized umbrella going round and round... But this would be a swirl of words.... all I have to say is my turds smell like roses... And I fart out delightful words ...okay.. Evil roses...enjoyed,.p.d

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! I thought I was the only one who wrote about the crapper. I wouldn't Shi--Poop you man, you're my favorite turd! (PG rated version of a saying I frequently use) REGULAR-ly I mean, Regularity is the key! GREAT POEM. 7 rate and my favorite!

    The last best flush?

    Even the shape looks like a toilet and one could say that the "turd" part could have some delight - it certainly is hilarious!

    Your are getting creative Dan, like the shape of things here. Love, Vie
