The Woman Who Sat on the Toilet for Two Years.

 

 *The Boston Globe. March 13, 2008.

 

(Wichita), Kansas.  Authorities are considering charges in the bizarre

case of a woman who police said sat on her boyfriend’s toilet for two years.

 

 

And when you

Think of it

It is only a hassle

To get up from

What you will revisit

Time and time

Again.

 

All that you

Take in, in

This life

Is a wash

Anyway.

 

All your slick

Posturing

The endless histrionics

Will wind up

In a dance

Cheek to cheek

Above the bowl.

 

All your

Upstream paddling

Leads to those

Placid waters

And royalty

Yes

Even a king

Will make his

Royal flush.

 

--Doug Holder
