Poetry By Chuck



I've been sipping my own bath water.
Slurping its sludge.
Gargling its particulate matter.
And enjoying its taste.

Yes, I've been gobbling it up.
Chugging it down.
Drowning in its wealth.
Living in its waste.

I've drank so much cloudy film.
Chasing drops the tub around.
My stomach is distended.
My tongue coated with paste.

Its a life that really stinks.
Licking the ring around.
Always in a circle.
Wearing an angry sated face.

Author notes

With tounge in cheek and a good toothbrush, I offer this piece.  Check your smiles at the door and be prepared to choke on its horrible stench! lol.

    A good toothbrush and a bottle of bleach is more like it! Yuck! Gag! Spit!    You are so funny. Your sense of humor as well as your thought provoking way of presenting things are always a delight and a treasure. Thank you again for painting a picture and creating a scene...I'm not sure I totally enjoyed the taste...I'm thinking mud wrestling looks like a lot more fun after this!  Great job!

    We all take ourselves to serious sometimes. The true test of character is to ease up on ourselves. Life does suck now and then and sometimes for long times. But, life is life and its like that! lol. Glad you have taken the time to realize ...
    Life Sucks! (grin)
