Comments : Early Bathroom Lessons (senryu)

    Hello Larry

    A perfect senryu for me at this unfortunate time.
    Just the other day, my little boy was in the garden with me when he suddenly stops and looks my way. I have learnt what that look means.

    "Hold on!" I shout, "just pull your pants down and go in the bushes"

    Stupidly, I help him pull his pants down unaware just how desperate he is. Standing (even more stupidly) in front of him, my clean trousers get a thorough (and rather yellow) soaking.

    Great stuff.

    All the very best,

    Larry, this made me chuckle. Always unfortunate when they don't make it.

    I must say, it amuses me highly that the color of the Fun & Humor section is a piss yellow, which really goes well with the theme of the poem. That small tidbit aside, this is an endearing Senryu; it feels to me like it's the beginning of a tv sitcom episode! Great job!

    Hahah...reminds me of my little one. I pick him up from school and the moment the car stops he runs out and I know where he is heading to! The funny part is when he finds the bathroom is occupied..hahah I like the imagery here :)

    The bathroom lessons are very hard for both the children and their parents.

    lovely job with this difficult section, Larry.
