BROWN TOWN
(1/12/14)


I couldn't
take it
anymore

two weeks
had passed
since an interloper
had destroyed
the building's
men's room
with a diarrhea
bomb

and
there was still
shit crust
on the side
of the toilet
seat

still dark
drops
on the inside
of the stall
door

I could
complain

but after
an engineer
down the hall
had done all
the heavy scraping
from floor
and walls

and the
janitors
had done
their best
to clean
the rest

the bitching
would seem
less
than manly

so I opened
the custodial
locker

found
the most
powerful looking
industrial type
cleaner

dispensed
about half a pack
of paper towers

sprayed
the filth
liberally

let it soak
for a few

very carefully
wiped
the affected
areas

then
re-inspected
to find
no further evidence
of fecal
desecration

I stepped
back
and felt
much better
about
the situation

stowed
the cleaner

tossed
the paper
towels

returned

then promptly
used
another
commode

there
was no way
I could ever
bare my ass
on that
defiled crapper
again

I am
a princess

after all
