Okay, I believe I know the dude whose poop this was written about.
How do I know him, you ask?
Because every time he uses our bathroom he always seems to leave a little calling card behind in our commode.
It's like he's proud of it or something.
He also told me he never--ever--flushes without having looked at what he's deposited first.
Good God, man...why? I asked.
His reply? "Just to see if I'm doin' okay."
You can tell that from poop?
I hadn't the slightest idea...

~Dean

    Wow - if I had that photo when I wrote this post... the mind reels.

    Thanks, as always for the comments.

LOL LOL LMAO. (pardon the pun, Mark)

At first I thought I was seeing things, then I thought it was my understanding gone amiss, and lasly I considered perhaps you have lost your mind. Bottom line....great fun, my friend. Bob (Why not change the word "poo" to "shit" for more impact. LOL

    Thanks, Bob - something traumatic must have happened to me in 5th grade (the '69 Cubs perhaps?) to cause my humor to stay stuck at that developmental level.

A very well-written poem about a floater that is always there but does not do much to make anything gon smoother and better for anyone but themselves.

    Yes, a bit irreverent for the season I actually gave up alcohol for Lent, but now that that's over, I can imbibe again and write some REALLY immature poetry.

Sail on, sail on, O mighty shit of State . . .

So sorry I flushed all my sixes earlier in the week--alas, none remain. Must be something I ate.

Archimedes must be exceedingly proud. I know I am . . . no one ever expressed that principal to me with such . . . clarity.

Lilacs are the perfect choice.

Bravo, Mark.

Peace, Lee

    I think perhaps I've found my niche at last - I could teach science to 5th grade boys using bathroom humor.

I don't know, Mark, even though you say you are, I'm thinking you are NOT sorry! Shameless, yes; sorry? I don't believe so for one minute. And I, for one, am very grateful. I would have hated to miss out on this classic ode to the mysteries found in the commode. [I wanted to end with a fl(o)u(ri)sh, too...] xo

    I wonder what trauma I suffered in 5th grade to cause the development of my sense of humor to get stuck in that phase. Thanks for the review and you're right - I'm not really that sorry.

reply by Rachelle Allen on 19-Apr-2019
    Hahaha. The teacher in me knows when a fifth grade boy is lying.

I am so glad that the picture has nothing to do with the poem!! Ha! Ha! I didn't get it at first.. Ode to a floater..then all of a sudden I thought..this is about going poop!! Wickedly sick!

    "Wickedly sick" is an apt description - I'll take it as a compliment.

reply by Randa Dayle on 22-Apr-2019
    Oh, it is a compliment! 100%

    Thank you, G. I tried to think of the most ridiculous thing to rhapsodize, and this is what "came out" so to speak.

Mark,

Okay. Oooookay. I have to admit, when I saw the title, I thought it was going to be about dead bodies, so is this better? Hmmm.... Still thinking on that.

reply by the author on 22-Apr-2019
    Again, one has to look for the deeper meaning - I know that "on the surface" (get it?), this looks like a disgustingly immature poem about poop, but perhaps, on a deeper level it contains a message about our common destiny as we float through the ether on this blue planet that is our home. (or maybe not).

This is a good ode to a floater, a nice fantasy, funny but exposed so interestingly, the loaf of brown whom gravity cannot pull down; well said, well done. Thank you for sharing. Keep Writing Inspire Changing -- DR ALCREATOR
