A big old shit



A big old shit

floating down the stream
always one of the team
the team of god and the omnipresent steam
of life that fills our souls with strife

we have set our buttocks
over the railings of the bridge
we have put on the ointment
to keep our cheeks safe from midge
squeeze hard
your turds disbarred

what now exits from your dark portal?
some sort of unsavoury brown object
now set to plunge into water and snorkel
away out to sea
why does my shit always leave me

empty and alone now
mopping your sweaty brow
approximately 5 kilos lighter
the promise of a future somewhat brighter
you are a shitting blighter

for stubborn lingering smells
use your lighter
you're one of life's fighters
thank you for shitting into the river
your shitting prowess makes me shiver

in life you're no receiver
but a giver
pounding life's arse
top of the class
you've shattered the ceiling of glass

well done
