Here I Sit

"Here I sit, broken hearted

Paid a penny but only farted"

Have you ever read this little ditty before

It was etched on the back of a toilet door

Vandalism was common way back then

Graffiti often scrawled in marker pen

Alongside a declaration of I ❤️U and

A heart drawn around the initials of two

I woz ere, me4U and 2gether4ever

It was never big, it was never clever

I probably read this little poem around 1984

Amazed I still remember, the ditty on the door

just for fun

I retain two volumes by Nigel Rees: "Graffiti Lives" and "Graffiti 2" - which provide fun when the mood seeks a lift. Well done to Mr Rees
and his publisher for these forty year old treasure troves of public
wit. Excerpts gratefully acknowledged in the cause of further
education!

it needs your support
And how about this for all you intellectual poets out there
TS Eliot is an anagram of toilets
Then there's this....
I wish I were what I was when I wished I were what I am.

My favourite was often seen above urinals

"The future of Britain lays in your hands"

... or hand in my case

Ha-ha! Yes, we've all seen similar ditties on toilet doors, I think.
