Porta Kleen

Porta Kleen

it was hot
and i needed
to take a shit
real bad
so i scampered
up the path
to the public toilet

i found
the plastic
public shitter
a grey 
polyethylene monolith
broiling
in the summer sun
with a sticker
on the box
that said
Porta Kleen
in a lovely font
of 
red
white and blue
even
stripes
that intentionally
obviously
obnoxiously
reminded me
of Old Glory

swelled
with patriot pride
just like my
swollen
tensed bowels
i stepped inside
to the horror
of all the shit
and piss
down in the hole
and when i smelled it
and almost puked
i put my hand
to my heart
i pledged allegiance
to Porta Kleen
and our star spangled banner
which gave my soul
strength

when i sat
to take my shit
sweating
in the plastic hotbox
of other people's
waste
and cursing
the biological necessity
to inhale
when i finally
dropped my load
and it splashed back up
it seemed sorta gross
until i thought
again
of the red, white and blue
and the stripes
of the Porta Kleen
logo

with my pants
at my ankles
i felt nauseous
for a moment
but instead
of puking
i chanted
"USA!!! USA!!! USA!!!"
which 
instead of sick
made me proud
of all the shit
and the piss
that had splashed up
and all over
my dripping
disgusting
ass
