A Drop-Off Problem
We have a drop-off problem in America.
We must decide which restroom
one can use when nature beckons.
So far, tumult reigns among the people.
If we declare both genders equal
as well as every variation within the two
everyone can share the same restroom
and stand or sit as necessity requires.
But some find this approach offensive
and if they win, perhaps we should
evaluate what some Third World folks
have used peacefully for centuries.
They dig a hole behind the bushes
and stack some leaves nearby.
No need to have a plunger.
When so moved, just drop by.
