O Luxury
Guy W. Longchamps

O what a luxury it be how exquisite,
what perfect bliss
so ordinary and yet chic
to pee to piss to take a leak

To feel your bladder just go free
and open like the Might Miss
and all your cares go down the creek
to pee to piss to take a leak

for gentleman of great physique
who can hold water for one week
for ladies who one-quarter cup
of tea can fill completely up

for folks in urinalysis
for Viennese and Greek and Swiss
for little kids just learning this
for everyone it’s pretty great
to urinate
women are quite circumspect
but men can piss with great effect
with terrible hydraulic force
can make a stream or change its course
can put out fires or cigarettes
and sometimes
laying down our bets
late at night outside the bars
we like to aim up at the stars.

Yes for men it’s much more grand
women sit or squat
we stand
and hold the fellow in our hand
and proudly watch the yellow arc
adjust the range and make our mark
on stones and posts for rival men
to smell and not come back again
