Smooth move, ex-lax -

You think you’re smart

No wait, relax

That’s not a fart

Those meds will help

If you can’t poop

So, help yourself

Till it’s like soup

Frustrating, you think

You know it all

Yes, your shit stinks

A rank windfall

A velvet streak

Runs down the hall

You really reek

A dung spitball

A perfect sphere


Your dairy-air

Is killing me

But, I can help

Just wait and see

Thank god, it’s no match

For potpourri
