The Price of Gas
If you enter a bathroom and you think,
‘Lord, have mercy! Someone made a big stink!’
You should kindly keep that thought to yourself,
yet still show an impish grin - like an elf.
Consider cracking a window to clear the air,
or lighting up a scented candle - if you dare.
It’s highly unlikely the room will blow.
But really, truth be told, you never know.
Then, hold your breath and compose your obit.
Exhale as you make your hasty exit.
Thank your lucky stars that you survived the rife,
and escaped the foul aroma with your life.
