Ode to Crap

Ode to Crap


You are found everywhere,

We produce tons of you

Both physically and literally.


You exist in bucket fulls

A much maligned part of our world

We are all responsible there’s no shirking that.


Sometimes my words reflect you clearly

You are easily spotted, look, don’t smell

You leave a brown stain wherever you go.


There are days when I feel crap,

And it’s probably unfair to relate

When it’s my fault not yours.


Its not your responsibility that society

Has labelled you in such a derogative way

When you are only doing the business.


I imagine you have an inferiority complex

As a result of generations of bad press

After all who ever heard of good crap?


As you are a necessary crucial function

I am sympathetic, I want to reach out

Comfort you, show you I care.


Of course as you and I both know

Others have their own perceptions of you

It is after all my crap that doesn’t stink!!

  1. The poem and the comments here are fabulous. How could a poem like this and subject matter not incite such funny afterthoughts. I especially laughed at the first comment and summerstommy2 i am seeing a different side you now..LOLOL

  2. I’m not going to lie to you here – I have really good poops sometimes. So does my cat. For instance, the very first poop after you’ve finally gotten over food poisoning? That is a good one.

  3. Politicians have been producing it for years. 🙂 Love it and may I say, ‘That which we call crap. By any other name would smell as sweet.’

  4. wow your blog is so professional. and its amazing how many followers and vies you have!

    I think I could learn one thing or another from you. No, actually i could learn 1000 things from you! your blog looks amazing!

    • That’s very kind, Thank you. I’m not so sure why I have as many followers as I do – as I am a self confessed blogging slacker, though when I am here I do LOVE to interact with my community and read about the things they have been up to. Interaction really helps with building a supportive reader base 🙂

  5. That is so funny and how true that we label them that way. I think they are under appreciated. You know, for certain people seeing them coming once a day is a real reward! There are drug companies invent drug just for that too!

Whaddya Reckon?
