splashing around

Let’s be concise:

Living
in hospitals
is like
diving
in swimming pools—
the exit can be
problematic.

Sign above urinal:
“Please do not throw
things in urinal.”

I did not see
things in urinal
worth throwing.
Nor would I climb
into the urinal
to throw things.

So why that sign?
Simpler:
“If yous throw stuff
into this here urinal
yous gots to lick it out.”
—even I understand that one.
