The fate of one new ostomate,
who couldn’t wait to irrigate
could be a helpful learning tool
for any future hopeful fool.
What started as a defecation,
ended up in devastation.
When starting to eliminate
he found it indiscriminate.
When sound came from his stomach ache,
he found there was no stoma brake.
and sure enough he got the lot.
He didn’t quite know what to do
to guide the flow from all that poo.
He was in it, head to toe,
so didn’t know which way to go.
What with the stink and all the brown,
his normal instincts let him down.
This plight for him was not much fun,
for he could neither fight nor run.
He smelt the splat that he had shat,
and felt a prat in all of that.
You bet this man was a victim,
and yet it did not get to him.
After he cleaned up the mess,
he seemed to see it as a test.
He thought he ought to contemplate,
his fate to be an ostomate.
He’s not put off nor is he scared,
as next time he is more prepared.
Of course he’s got a lot of hope,
because he knows that he can cope.
