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.
