Whoops means there’s been a small mistake -
you know the sort that we all make.
Like feeling that you might have sinned,
because fate makes you pass some wind.
Or when we have slight accidents,
whoops might admit these incidents.
It hints of an apology
without that terminology.
Because of my incontinence,
whoops can provide self confidence.
It’s something you can just blurt out
to show you know what you’re about.
It may well say that we’re surprised,
or at least make us apprised
of something someone might have done,
that might embarrass anyone.
If folk see that you’re embarrassed,
you’re less likely to be harassed.
A whoops is such a lovely word,
said loud enough to just be heard.
I say whoops if the aroma
or the poops come from my stoma.
For I know there are a few,
who cannot stand the smell of poo.
When you’re the one who speaks up first,
then other’s will not do their worst.
So I’ll proclaim a whoopsie-
before some other claims a ‘phew’.
A whoops works well with many smells.
The think of stink is what it quells.
So people do not dwell so long
upon the smell they feel is wrong.
