I had a hard time this morning, thinking of an “instructional” poem. But this afternoon, one of my most important and helpful lessons came to mind. Enjoy the poem and be sure to heed it if you are of the correct gender.
This might also double for my Ottava Rima for NaPoWriMo as it turns out that this poem meets the form.
It is not good to make a mess.
I’ll get upset and then you’ll see,
That listening now is for the best:
First pick it up, and then you pee,
And when you’re done, you might have guessed,
The seat goes down. It’s best for me.
And don’t forget to wipe it clean.
For wet spots, I am not so keen!
