A TOAST TO CLEAN TOILETS AND THOSE WHO CLEAN THEM

Updated on August 17, 2012

Water-Loo?


Lift a glass, make a toast,

To lovely people sans glory,

Who should be paid so much more,

For maintaining the lavatory.

.

.

There is little praise,

And scarce appreciation,

For those wonderful people,

Supporting the “comfort station”.

.

.

So many thrones,

Come to mind,

Where I may not again,

Place my behind.

.

.

The latrines of Marines,

Like memories stirred.

Are burned in our heads,

As warmer seats were preferred.

.

.

Toast those who do,

Tasks that we prefer not to,

Keeping the potty from being spotty,

And becoming our water-loo.

.

LIFT THE LID SID!


All of life,

Seems to be a test.

Perhaps particularly,

When you “take a rest”.

.

Away from home,

We take a chance,

At public toilets,

To drop our pants.

.

We often have no choice,

When nature calls.

An urgent voice,

Pulls us to public stalls.

.

Men and women,

Sprinkle when they tinkle,

But all to often,

There’s another wrinkle.

.

Public thrones,

Can shock and awe.

And many have cursed,

At what they saw.

.

Empty urinals,

Hang on walls.

As aimless men,

Hose down stalls.

.

And what does,

The offender find most fond?

It is that over-used,

Last chance “port-a-john”.

.

And are some surprised,

As they discover,

That they’ve made a mess,

When they hover?

.

Carefully control,

Your sprinkling splatter.

And especially,

That fecal matter!

.

Please be discrete,

When you excrete.

Make your rest complete!

Leave a clean seat!

.

.

~Micky Dee~

.


Lift the lid Sid!

Raise the seat Pete!

Wash the throne Tyrone!

Don’t miss Chris!

Clean the place Grace!

Keep a clean privy Livvy!

Sanitize the head Fred!

Wipe the stool fool!

It’s a stall for all y’all!

.

Today I salute the Federal "rest areas" across America-

................................and those wonderful people who labor - for US!

      Micky you are a star.

      What you write here is so true, but something most people never talk about.

      I´m with you,. God bless the people who do the job I´d hate to do.
