At First I was Afraid

At first I was afraid, I was full inside.
Two-hours meeting with my boss,
I couldn't leave; I tried.
I accepted to bear my cross,
feeling shivers all along,
nothing's wrong:
only one finger of King Kong.

And then, cold sweat! Through waves of pain.
A deadly silent one escaped:
beans, cole, leek, lentils, and butane.
I should have known it's a mistake.
I should have tried to hold it back.
I should have taken a short break.
I almost died of heart attack!

He looked at me; I couldn't breathe ...
I'm heading home, now
'cause I'm not working anymore.
Weren't the fiber and the cereal good enough
I mumble jumble, 
my turtle head pokes, I can't stoop! 

Nine, one, and one! I need to poop!
As soon as I get home ... I'll poop.
If I arrive alive,
If I can long survive,
If I can hold it and strive,
I'll poop and poop! I'll poop and poop! Hey, hey ...

I need to poop! I need to ... oh, oh!

Inspired by:
Silent One's contest: Music to my Ears -- I will survive, line: "At first I was afraid"
Roy's contest: Everyone Poops.

    A7 for this very humorous poem. Always better to leave the big stinker at home than in the office restroom for others to encounter !
