Plink, Plink, Plink by Don Matthews

I sit upon my porcelain

Throne and ponder, think

I know what you are thinking

What rhymes with think, yep, sink

I think I must change washer

In leaking tap in sink

That’s next to me (it’s dripping)

Plink, plink, plink

You think I’m on my toilet

Sitting, waiting, think

It’s really all just make believe

Wink, wink, wink

    Don’s witty poem has a toilet, a thinker, and a leaking tap. Is it real or simply a figment of imagination? I’m sure many sit upon their porcelain thrones and have a good think, read, or watch. It’s the one spot that offers comfort and privacy. Then why not? Many leaky faucets still wait to be fixed.
    Congratulations Don!

    While sitting on your throne can you give me some idea of how to get my husband to fix our leaking sink? Could that be why you sit there daydreaming about reasons not to fix your leaking sink? haha This is really a cleaver piece Don! Brought a big smile to my face. Joni
