It’s perfectly natural, but……………………..

We all know that ‘special feeling’
One that doesn’t bear repeating,
But it does, and life’s a blast,
Flatulance, or more politely, gas.

We are the food we eat, it’s said
By some bright spark with a swollen head,
Fragrance sweet, or stinky foul,
Tums and backsides in unison growl.

It’s not acceptable in company,
Red faced fast exit to spend a penny,
Sit on the throne and let it all out,
‘What the hell is that?’ A familiar shout.

We grin and try to laugh it off,
Choose not to notice that choking cough,
Apologise with a nod and a shake,
Leaving a waft in our ample wake.

Baked beans do it, sprouts as well,
The guilty party is hard to tell
When there’s three of you and one lets rip,
No-one is likely to own up to it.

But just a couple and one of them knows
That fragrant whiff is not a rose,
But love is in the air they say,
So just pass the deoderising spray.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
