The Fart


(with apologies!)

It can be hard

To learn the art

Of how to do a juicy fart.

It must be brewed

Until just right

And then let out slowly in the night.

If you can feel one

During the day

It should be put right away

And let to brew

A day or more

And used for full effect.  For sure

The person to whom

Your fart is aimed

Should not guess your funny game.

Then suddenly

You hear a shout

Of "Someone's let a banger out!"

And then you think

With some content

"That's another fart I've spent",

And then you lie

Down on the floor

And fart and fart and fart some more.
