I may stop laughing sometime tomorrow! I've always heard there's a first time for everything. Well, this is my first time to read an ode to a turd. The lofty style is a BIG part of the humor in this excellent poem!

    Thanks, Janice. I'm guessing this humor wasn't everyone's cup of tea, but it's nice to know that some out there found it funny.

Mr V ... your poem attest to the fact that the porcelain throne offers opportunity for release for that which is within : the immaterial and the material

reply by the author on 22-Apr-2019
    not to mention, it (the porcelain throne) is a great source of humor for those of us who never matured.

I am laughing so hard right now, "And my name is Charles..." Oh my gosh... That you found this video. What a pair! Mark, you need your own HBO special I swear! To make it so sophisticated. There is another on here who attempted to do this but missed the mark by so much! Cheers, Fonda

    Thank yo so much! You're the only reviewer to mention the video which was my favorite part.

reply by Ms. Snyder on 22-Apr-2019
    I am a pretty thorough reader - or I try to be - I think the only time I miss stuff of yours is if you are in blind contests and that is only if I don't go browsing through your profile to read your stuff every couple of weeks. I love your work! I will buy your stuff if you start to sell it! Cheers, Fonda

Good God, talk about LAUGH!!! I didn't realise what you were writing about until the second stanza. And to write about a turd in a form that smacked of sonnet?!? Who woulda thunk it???

Loved it, loved it, loved it! What a clever concept for a poem lol!

Um, presumably the wee-floater eventually sunk ... like the Titanic?!?

Great job! Still laughing hahahahahaha. (By the way, I woulda given a six, but had none left)

    Yeah - they all sink sooner or later - I'm sure there's a scientific law to explain that, but that's a topic for another poem - thanks for the review!

This is just too funny! I don't know why I think poo is funny, but it is and floater are so awful, especially when someone is waiting to use the bathroom. How do you make it go down. I hate to say well done on a poo poem, but it is. =}

    "I don't know why I think poo is funny" Me either, but I do - thanks for being a kindred spirit.

hi mark. a rather 'smelly' contribution, but as usual well done. Being away for awhile I've missed some of your clever words, ah, well I know there are plenty more Sincerely Anne

Ha, this is just brilliant, Mark. The lilac picture is totally appropriate for number two. Your use of science, art, and history in addition to much allusion make this is a good fun read today.

Many thanks for sharing. :)

Gloria

Hi Mark... Hahahahahahaha!!! I love the lovely lilac scent that accompanied the poem to cover the stench of the porta-potty... :) LOL I definitely didn't see that one coming, even with the warning on the image... which was funny in itself and perfectly chosen by the way! LOL I loved it!

    Thanks, Susan. I keep saying that Fanstory should add an "Immature" warning in addition to its sex and violence options.

What a very clever post Mark, written in impeccable poetic language, although you can't resist the humour, though it centres on toiletry habits, you've done a great job in writing this, shouldn't this vibe called, an ode to "poop"?written in no absolute form and Abbas rhyming, happy Easter to you and yours, blessings, Roy

    Thank you, Roy for having a sense of humor when it comes to these more immature posts of mine. I'll try to balance it out by making the next one a bit more high-minded.

First off, thanks for the lack of the appropriate picture. Secondly, thank you for po(o)sting this funny piece of sh.., er, cr.., poetry. I love the flow (but I guess that's really for number one, if it's number two, there is no floater) and I would say imagery but I don't want to go there either. Hell, it was just funny and a pleasant diversion from all the Easter pieces. Great job.

    Thanks - I tried to think of the most ridiculous thing that could be the subject of an ode, and this is what "came out"
