The Sunken Toilet


The sunken toilet

Under the house

Made her feel

She was a mouse.

The door she opened

And thought:

“Oh God, I am sinking!”

Surrounded by so much water

She was deep inside

A submarine toilet.

Was she afraid

The water would come in?

“I am drowning”.

But she didn’t.

Blue emptiness around her

Yet no danger was there

A toilet is just a toilet

Thought the little mouse.
