Bathroom Signs Shouldn’t Be In Code (3-Verse Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane
Sipping drinks at a trendy new bar,
I’m hoping the john isn’t far.
I rush off on my quest
For a bathroom addressed
To my needs and find symbols bizarre.
So which one’s for gals? Which for guys?
Posting puzzles for drinkers ain’t wise.
I start ravin’: “Be clear!
Tell us ‘Females Go Here.’”
But alas, I must guess and … surprise!
I walk in and find menfolk galore,
Lots of urinals, yellow-soaked floor.
And the smell — unfresh hell –
Sends me rushing pell mell
To the john meant for me. Nevermore!
