A WEE POEM
If you never pee outside,
then I really think that you oughta.
Whenever you go and wee in the bowl,
it’s just a waste of good water.
That’s sixteen glasses you’re wasting you know,
Every time you need to go.
If you think you’re too good to pee in the grass
Then I say you’re too precious about your #@&#
There are some that I know that compost their wee,
With a proper toilet, not under a tree!
It’s about the planet and only using our share,
To indulge in luxury isn’t fair.
Now if your concern is about being wet
Then your priorities, I just don’t get.
And besides, when I think of it, I have a good giggle,
You just need to learn to do a good jiggle!
So don’t be a princess or don’t be a prince,
Don’t be a wuss and whinge and wince.
Don’t think you’re too good to go outside,
It’s easy to find a good place to hide.
Our water is precious, don’t flush it away,
How can you possibly think that’s okay!
And to those who read this and say eeeeoooo
It’s not like I’m asking you to do a poo!!!
Though come to think of it........................
Now, some of my family members (not the ones in this house) were concerned about me posting this poem. Two of them expressed the concern that I would be perceived as 'weird'.
I really understand their concern but this brings up a whole new issue for me. The reason I could be perceived as weird is because our society has made certain decisions on how we should behave. I often feel the general public are ashamed of being animals and do everything that they can to distance themselves from nature. We have been conditioned to fall into these prescribed behaviours along with everyone else so that we will be accepted.
Well we are animals. We wee! That's okay! I don't know why it's such a bad thing to mention it. Are we being pretentious so as to prove we are on a higher level than other animals. We have amazing power, as humans, to change the world around us. We can build homes, invent machines to make our lives easier, we can research to discover why things happen, communicate with each other remotely................... the list goes on and on!
Does that really make us superior to other creatures? I'm not sure! I can't think of another animal in the world, who if given these powers, would discover that they were damaging their own world, choose to ignore the fact, and just continue to make themselves happy and comfortable while they go about figuratively blowing themselves up!
I wonder if humans will video their own demise on their Iphones, if they ultimately manage to destroy the planet?!
And to those family members who gave me their feedback - Thank you for your honesty. I really appreciate it (no sarcasm here), it's just that I'm comfortable being a little different when I believe it's the right thing to do.
