Flatulence on a Windy Day

Updated on March 19, 2013

Caution: Reading may cause empathetic reaction.

There is no finer time for some of us to say,

that its impossible to stay a smile on a windy day.

For it permits that satisfying moment when the winds begin to course,

to release a little pressure from within, yet no one wiser to the source.

Innocently walking by with not a care to be seen,

and anonymously leaving something wherever one has been.

A little treat for the next passer-by a slight whiff they will have received,

your signature on work well done, a scent not to be believed.

For those of us who are blessed with an active plumbing system,

to cut the cheese among the crowds is not an act of terrorism.

A bit of happiness we find in our own special way,

when our flatulence is disguised by a windy day.

    That was very clever and absolutely hysterical. It is so true, which makes it so funny.

    Gus, you the man! I'll remember your quote the next time its windy. By the way, you would probably appreciate learning that the first ad to appear adjacent to my poem was for Chili's. :)

    Burning Bush - You are good (and funny)! Your amusing poem reminds me of one surgeon's preamble to his medical journal article about the need to take extra care not to produce damage to the anal sphincter muscle when excising hemmorhoids. He pointed out that the sphincter was the only muscle in the human body that knew when a person was alone or in a crowd.

    Gus ;-)

    Bobbi, I just couldn't help myself. Every now and then I feel the need to speak the truth and find the commonality in all of us. I am so glad you enjoyed.

    So funny and it brought a big smile to my face. Not a rant, which I've come to appreciate you for, but so funny and very, very good.

    We can't take ourselves too seriously. Life must be sprinkled with a little humour. Thank you for visiting and commenting littlesecret13.
