An Ode To "The Outhouse"
The service station trade was slow
The owner sat and rocked around,
With sharpened knife and cedar stick
Piled shavings on the ground.
No modern facilities had they,
Just a log across the rill,
It led to a shack, marked His and Hers
That sat against the hill.
"Where is the ladies restroom, sir?"
The owner leaning back,
Said not a word but whittled on,
And nodded toward the shack.
With quickened step she entered there
But only stayed a minute,
Until she screamed, just like a snake
Or spider might be in it.
With a startled look and beet-red face
She bounded through the door,
And headed quickly for the car
Just like three gals before.
She skiped the log, and jumped the stream.
The owner continued to rock about,
As her stockings, down at her knees,
Caught on a sassafras sprout.
She tripped and got up, and then
In obvious disgust,
Ran to the car, stepped on the gas,
And faded in the dust.
Of course we all wanted to know
What made the gals all do
The things they did, and then we found
That the whittling owner knew.
A speaking system he'd devised,
To make the thing complete,
He tied a speaker on the wall
Behind the toilet seat.
He'd wait until the gals got set,
And then the devilish tyke
Would stop his whittling long enough,
To speak into the mike.
And as she sat, a voice below
Struck terror, fright and fear.
"Please use the other hole,
We're painting under here!"
