It's Only A Word



Shitty is such a cute little word I chuckle each time I hear it Even words like crappy or poopy Really don't even come near it Shitty is such a silly expression Who was first to utter this phrase Some poor soul who ws really ticked Or a dude describing his malaise Shitty can turn conversations to fun Serious things take on a new light When someone utters "that was shitty" To describe an unpleasant night Shitty's not used by sophisticated folks They find it vulgar and naughty If one of their kids utters that word They're punished and end up all snotty Shitty is such a humorous word Can't help chuckling when I peruse it But after giving it much consideration This ain't the best place to use it! © Jack Ellison 2013 No hate mail please!

    Hahahaha, is someone sending hate mail over this poem? That's just shitty, lol. This may really be the funniest one I've read yet. Very good. I saw the title to the one after this, and thought the word was going to be love, lol, wrong.

    You ARE naughty my friend! To utter that word is totally funny as you say, but oh so wrong at the same time (maybe that's why it's so funny)! You sure can write some of the best poetry that I've ever seen Jack, you are too hilarious! I really loved reading this delightful poem this afternoon! What a masterful piece, Great Work!!

    Almost too hard to resist making a smartass comment, Jack, but I'll try. I can definitely picture where you must have conceived this ode to the commode. Love it!
