• that, that, white ceramic hole that you have grown accustomed to squatting over

    in quarterback formation

    just to prevent illegally lingering germs from going home with you

    yes, that big ole’ circle whose size … has and never will change

    let me tell you, lil mama

    one day your pee, despite your firm footing and your best efforts

    will land all over the sidelines


    on top of the rim, on the floor, on your clothes, on your shoes perhaps,

    but definitely down your leg

    at some point … in your life

    what was once straight on

    will flow slanted and definitely crooked

    your stance won’t change

    your behind, maybe a little bigger

    won’t affect the stream of liquid

    that once dispensed in straw-like formation


    no efforts to lean left or right will alter the places

    your pee will decide to land

    so remember the 3P’s

    peel the liner off

    place it on the ceramic hole and

    pee only in a seated position

    and know this …

    if you live long enough for your mind, your body and your spirit

    to journey through peri-menopause and menopause

    yes, I said it – the “M-word”

    cause’ it definitely ain’t too early

    to talk about

    first things first …

    “one day, your pee, will be crooked!”

    Dedicated to all the lil’ mama’s who will be big mama’s one day.

    “They will perish, but You will endure; Yes, they will all grow old like a garment; Like a cloak You will change them, And they will be changed.”

    Psalm 102: 26 NKJV
