TP

When poison ivy was first used as toiletry
Weeks of burning pain inspired a precursor to TP
Clearly it would not be green so it wouldn't be mistaken
For that horrid leaf that caused such infernal ach'n

    It would make it so much easier to see the poems that we hadn't read yet.

    well, my friend, this was on the bottom of page two sorted by poetry form so now I think I have three more pages to examine in the future. but i know from looking in those other pages earlier, it is going to be tough finding poems i have not seen since I first met you!

    I know what you mean. I wish poetry soup would install a program that would change the text color on poems we have read. Much like the text color is changed on the list of internet site we have accessed while doing searches. It would make it so much easier for us.

    Dangers of living in the woods!! Hey, my friend, thanks for the generous number of remarks on my poems , even thought a few you saw were not all that great. I am so sleepy I can't keep my eyes open right now but I really want to see more of your poems. Later, Gator!

    We were safe from such mistakes -- With catalogues that Sears would send -- Seems we'd reach and grab a page -- To insure a clean rear end.... And that's the way it was back home... Nice write Jon..... Happy New Year, my friend.......Jake

    You remember those days. That's too funny. That goes way back to the days of the outhouse. But I remember the stories. And I love the way you made it rhyme. Happy New Year Jake. Loved your comment!

    funny one, jon. This had to be made up?

    I did make it up. It is an old poem that I had written and forgot about. Just found it recently. But, My mom recently told me she remembers an incident where this actually happened to somebody.

    don't know if this is true, but it made for a very funny poem with your usual creative rhyming!

    I didn't know of any instances where this happened until I read this to my Mom and she remembered that there were some kids when she was younger that this happened to. I just thought it would make an interesting poem.

    Lol, I love Mandy's comment. Too funny. Yes, poison ivy would do it. I feel for those who mistakenly adorned their bodies with it. Too good, Jon.
