Don't Look

I am running out to the car in a hurry I am.
Then out of no where came a tall green trash can.
With a tumble a scream and a front flip or two.
I gaze over to see you giggling at once was your view.
Now at my sons' school I walk in to get him a pass.
And you know what he did.. He passed some loud gas.
I see stares I hear whispers and then came the smell.
Why couldn't I of been saved by the bell.
On my way out I got caught in the door.
Thinking to myself is there gonna be more.
I hurried up to my car so I could quickly get inside.
Only to pass someone peeing not even trying to hide.
So I closed my eyes and tried to drive away fast.
Hoping this day would simply not last.
Finally I arrive to my job at half past the hour.
With a donut in hand that I now will devour.
I eat it up quick and head to the meeting.
I didn't realize Id get such a wonderful greeting.
When the meeting wrapped up I started to smile.
I gasped at my reflection in the walls made of tile.
I had lips so white I looked sickly and ill
and now with this day I'm wondering what is the deal.
So if you see me coming it don't matter where
please look the other way and try not to stare.
If you do you will be a worm on my hook.
So move on turn away it's simple don't look!
