POEMS









What is this thing about a fart

that to our senses does impart,

those instant feelings of distaste

around the thoughts of body waste.


When some are near a long, loud fart,  

they may appear to fall apart.

They’ll fidget, then they’ll twitch their nose

and seek to show where it arose.


Do we point and make a fuss,

so the blame won’t fall on us?

Or would we have some empathy

and think ‘I’m glad that was not me!’.


Would we seek to name and shame,

should we speak up and lay the blame?

Or would we help folk overcome,

the fallout from their opened bum?


Sometimes it’s very hard to tell,

if long, loud farts will also smell.

But if and when you hear that sound,

you have the choice to stick around.


If we hear a long, loud fart,

is it fear that leaps to heart?

And does it irritate as well,

as we anticipate the smell?


What exactly are we thinking,

if loud farts are also stinking?

Do we make sure that it’s discussed,

or do we act with great disgust?


One more comment now I’ve started,

there’s none of us that hasn’t farted.

So why the hell have such distaste

for sounds and smells of body waste?
