Sandra is an artist and stay at home mom. In the last couple years she has started to use her creativity writing poems about poop.

Hai-Poo #1

Poop in the toilet.

Flushing down to the sewer.

Now decomposing.

Hai-Poo #2...HaHa, I Said #2!

Stomach is cramping.

Sweat is dripping off my brow.

Where is the latrine.
