German Living, Pome

Ode to a Bathroom Keyhole

O Bathroom Keyhole, you gape wide to show
The world my bum. Your room is narrow, dim,
And white. Whoever peeps through your void now

Will view each bathing, peeing, pooping whim.
Or worse: they’ll see me climbing Mount Commode
To shut the window for the night with prim

And proper balancing, and five-foot rod
In hand, since scaling Useless Window Ledge
Ain’t practical at all. I think the God

Of Entryways decided he would hedge
His bets on German doors that oft do what
They please and stand betwixt door frames, quite wedged:

He gave them mammoth holes for keys, so that
They’ll hear me shout, “Please help. I can’t get out!”

Come and behold, ye Peepers of the World, all manner of bathroom grandeur and greatness.

Come and behold, ye Peepers of the World, all manner of bathroom greatness and grandeur.
