haha... my only sugggestion would be to change peeing to pissing... unless youre from the uk and think pissing means getting drunk. haha. but in general, among americans, the theme of the poem would fit with it... idk... personal preference i guess..? i thik the word peeing makes it osund like a kindergartener. like "i need to peeeeee". but yeah... whatever

great title by the way... haha

hahaha oh man that's great

There is nothing interesting here and the subtlety factor is minus ten.

To applaud this is like congratulating a cow for mooing.

Hilariously insane!

Maybe i'm not reading it from the right angle but to me it just sounds like your throwing off some advice...although i wouldn't say it sux it definitley does not strike me as having any real poetic meaning.
 — Kmbrly

It doesnt really have any poetic meaning it was just comical.
 — dmu_96

mm..some people seem to read too much into things. this is funny as. saw it on a show once, cracked the hell outta me.
 — wendz

The only thing i like about this is the tittle.

 — housepoppy

 — SteelAngel

haha!  haven't done it myself, but i can imagine that it hurts like hell....

i didn't know that for some people in the UK, "pissed" means getting drunk!  interesting........
 — woman_power

I like the basic premise: don't do anything dumb.
  It's a funny haiku (pretty sure it is).
 — Hear
