Eau De Toilet Seat

by Chris Sorrenti

Enough already!
male bashing over raised toilet seats
if the ‘superior sex’ is too stupid to first check
then they deserve cold bottoms!

And do we not rate the same courtesy?
lift that seat girls after doing your business
lest in our neanderthalic stupor
splash it, pants and floor while tinkling!

Author's Note: A humorous look at one aspect of the ‘battle of the sexes.’ I’ve actually gotten pretty good at putting down the toilet seat in the past few years, but sometimes still forget, especially while multitasking. ;)

Ha, Chris! Is that a version of the ole ball and chain in the photo?? :)

This thought has crossed my mind more than once, Chris. But I guess the male of our species is supposed to be more gallant. Your piece has inspired me to post an old piece of short fiction, coming shortly.

LOL! An up-to-date comment on the old rivalry. In a house of males I put the lid up. In a house of females where I was the only male I am sure I put the seat down. That is called preservation - lol!

Point well made... sometimes i think i can aim well enough to pee with the seat down without making a mess (still working on it)... Nice post....Funny:)

"Urine" in good company with this one, Chris (and pardon the godawful pun!)
