When in the bathroom, you make a stink
Does it cringe or does it start to sweat?
I’ve often wondered, but haven’t asked, just yet
After being neatly rolled with its fellow sheets
A human hand grabs and heads for a seat
Right then, does the toilet paper feel its defeat?
Or does it, instead, feel more replete?
After all, we are using it, for what it is meant
Though asked, I’m sure it would give its dissent
Stand on the roller, and proclaim to the crowd
Nothing I did here, is making me feel proud!
With its roll now depleted, its job is finished, so they say
Until Mother Nature calls, and we’re headed back its way
