Fart Poem

You should write
more poems
about farts.

You have no
poems about farts!

But--

You should say
flatulence,

Because flatulence
is the scientific name
for farts.

*Dedicated to my children. Happy now?

  2. I have six grandsons and they all would laugh at this. Did I say laugh? I meant snicker, chortle, hoot and guffaw.

  3. Marian, it sounds like I missed something. But then when I write about things that aren't sweet, mushy, veiled, or the like I get told it isn't poetry. Even when the mechanics are there. Probably some of my 'poem's really aren't poems.

  4. Too cute! Flatulence is indeed the word to use on such occasions.

  5. Love the word fart! Those four letters carry a sensory load w-a-a-a-y beyond words like essence, vapors, and wind. I mean really, FART should be commanding an entire semester of poetry writing be committed to exploring the word's potential!

  6. I suspect your children and my Little Princess must be related. Then again, it most be something about kids (when they are 8-years-old) and their fascination with what the body can do... and how loudly it can be done. *sigh* I should probably read this poem to her. She'll probably memorize it and horrify the right people. Yes, I'll read it to her. ;-D
