Press One For Asshole by Michael Marrotti


Press One For Asshole

A city over populated
with assholes
is a city in dire need
of sanitation
Toilets can’t keep up
with the mass amount
of shit that needs
to be flushed
Toilet paper is scarce
The stench of shit
travels the streets
If you don’t smell it
you hear it
Speaking bullshit
has become
a secondary language
Speaking asshole
is still the language
of the land
Febreeze is a breath
of fresh air
Cologne and
perfume sales
are surpassing those
in France
Clogged up
bathroom stalls
and broken plungers
Janitorial jobs
are in high demand
when nobody wants
to put up with shit
People are fed up
with the problem
they created
Making phone calls
to no avail
Forced to push
one for asshole
and having the nerve
to ask why
