In these rhymes I’ll try to think
of times where stomas cause a stink.
And also I will try to show
how we cope and what we know.
Because a stoma sheds our waste
It’s not to everybody’s taste.
So problem number one might be
reactions from society.
There is not much that we can do
to change a person’s point of view.
But often it’s their ignorance
that’s people’s point of reference.
So if we try to educate
people may reciprocate.
Within my own community
I grasp each opportunity.
There are so many ways to share
for those of us who want to care.
I like to tell a joke or two
to get a gory story through.
One of the worst of these must be
sometimes bags split and shit busts free.
Yet when we’re set this type of test
then you can bet we’ll do our best.
When once an incident has past
and you have cleaned yourself at last.
There is no need to run and hide
just help them see the funny side.
Most people feel so much more pleased
if their anxieties are eased.
So try to show you’re confident
with each and every incident.
This lets these people know that you
can handle any wayward poo.
