Oh my ageing bladder was the inspiration for a verse this week. As I've got older I seem to spend more time on the toilet, I suppose that's quite normal and approaching the menopause too. I'm not complaining, ageing is a privilege denied by some people at my age so I am thankful for the body I have, even with it's weak leaky bits and stretch marks too.
So here goes, a poem about my bladder.....enjoy!!
Why do I always want the loo?
I'm permanently on the throne it's untrue
My bladder's a tad bit shady
and I have shares in Tena Lady
Not kidding I'm forever on the loo
It's always a bit of a trick
to find somewhere blooming well quick
I'm crossing my legs
Give me a toilet my body it begs
I'm desperately needing the loo
Is it childbirth that did this to me?
or middle age that makes me want to pee
Is it too much drinking?
Or is my bladder just shrinking?
Who knows? I just always need the loo
It's hard for a girl to take a quick leak
there's dignity required and a technique
To squat somewhere rough
from waist down in the buff
Oh no I prefer a proper loo
I may shock a farmer
or come face to face with a Llama
With knickers pulled down
the wildlife would frown
No I need to be going to a loo
Who knew one could write a poem about wee
toilet humour is always the key
It's really quite funny
having a bladder that is runny
Goodbye now I'm off to the loo
I know!! probably too much information but it does make me giggle sometimes not too much obviously as I need to prevent any accidents. If I go out for a walk with my son and I even mention that I've got to visit the toilet he will throw his arms up and say ' yeah I know you've got to go to the loo' as if in despair!! When you've got to go, you've got to go I reply.
Thank you for reading today and please come back tomorrow for Free from Friday (promise to leave the toilet humour behind).
Take care for now........
