How many times do you go to the washroom in a day?
 5
I visit the toilet more than 10 times a day
 6
I visit it after every meal
 7
After every drink
 8
My body doesn’t seem to know how to keep it in anymore
 9
In a world full of Washlets and Toilet Cafes
 10
2.5 billion People do not have access to the humble latrine
 11
Diarrhea is a weapon of mass destruction
 12
Women will only go poo poo and pee pee after nightfall
 13
Causing severe urinary tract infection and chronic constipation
 14
Having to risk physical and sexual assault
 15
All because there no walls in the fields for privacy
 16
And yet here we cannot live without a janitor.

Things not to flush down the toilet
 22
Bread
 23
Minzy the goldfish
 24
Tampons
 25
Babies
 26
My mind doesn’t seem to know what is important anymore
 27
Singapore toilets is like Time Square
 28
Every corner telling you “Please flush after use”
 29
Streets lined with Billboard of “Please help keep our restrooms Clean and Dry”
 30
Bold neon lights of “Do not squat on the toilet seat”
 31
If stop and listen you can hear the latest buzz in town
 32
Who clogged the toilet bowl

My office toilet has become my best friend
 38
A sanctuary
 39
A hide away
 40
Place were candy crush is allowed
 41
Where facebook and twitter have no objection
 42
Where sleeping beauty can her head resting against a toilet reel pillow
 43
A place to be alone
 44
A place to calm your mind
 45
To calm your heart
 46
I have shed my tears in this space
 47
My soul doesn’t seem to know how to let go anymore
 48
Sometimes I wish could flush my heart away
 49
Press the bottom
 50
A tsunami would come
 51
I would stand with my arm wide open
 52
Watching the water recede
 53
Feel the cold wind on my skin
 54
As the towering shadow rushes in
 55
Welcome
 56
I have been waiting for you

Poo Poo

The piece began, sounding like some odd public-service announcement.

Then it felt like an ad for some strange and obscure charity organization.

Then it became personal and almost seemed like a poem.

The refrain was comical.

That's not a compliment.
