Station Bathrooms

Station bathrooms are unsightly
Although patrons go in nightly
Then quickly leave in shameful haste
Asphyxiated by toxic waste
They can't perform the needful plunge
Without the tools to expunge 
Deposits lodged within the wells 
That emanate obnoxious smells
Errant stations should staff a crew
or raze these rooms that all eschew

    Thank you Kathryn. I almost didn't post this poem. I thought it might be a little too distasteful. But, it was my way of venting my displeasure with station bathrooms when I wrote it.

    Thank you Arild. I like the warning sign idea. Perhaps the sign could also read "Toxic waste dump".

    I agree. I don't know what gas station bathrooms are like anymore. I have avoided them like the plague for years.
