Constipation

Is that the Cons’ problem? Is a constant state of constipation what accounts for their persistent irritability and gloomy demeanor? Is that what the kerfuffles over gender-designated public toilets is supposed to distract us from? Is there a fear that if not-males see males having a hard time shitting, their sense of superiority will somehow be diminished? Are the kerfuffles over toilets supposed to wean us from bathroom humor? ‘Cause, it’s not funny, you know???!!!

Same old, same old

In 1945, my mother evacuated Austria with a similar load of baggage. Somehow, the clueless get a pass. Perhaps it’s the relief people feel when they’re finally shut of them.

“Deep in the Bight of Georgia”

Puddy’s Lament

The signs of blight are big, not slight,
Deep in the Bight of Georgia.
The sand dunes lie not wide or high,
Deep in the Bight of Georgia.

Let’s do what’s right, and fight the blight,
Deep in the Bight of Georgia,
Or S.I.A. will have its way,
Deep in the Bight of Georgia.

The septic tanks along the banks
Deep in the Bight of Georgia
Deprive me of the beach I love
Deep in the Bight of Georgia.

Dune buggies wail along the trail
Deep in the Bight of Georgia.
Sea turtles rush as toilets flush
Deep in the Bight of Georgia.

The dolphins cry, don’t let us die,
Deep in the Bight of Georgia.
Bull dozers snarl and snarl and snarl,
Deep in the Bight of Georgia.

The signs of blight are big, not slight,
Deep in the Bight of Georgia.
The sand dunes lie not wide or high,
Deep in the Bight of Georgia.
