The gardener replied, (with a blush).
I'm watering, you see,
The plants with my pee
Am relieved - there's now no need to flush!
Men peeing in the open/ outdoors, a familiar sight in India, has recently received a boost with the UK based charity, the National Trust urging menfolk to pee outdoors on 'pee bales' or compost heaps in order to save the planet. Women of course should continue to use a lavatory and flush (thereby contributing to global warming) as their pee is 'more acidic'. Get the story here
Vive la difference, I say!
the gardens are so lovely and lushReplyDelete
roses radiant with spring's blush
fragrant and bright
with nature's delight
sprinkled with stuff meant for the flush

@ms - it's supposed to work, but wonder if it will be okay to smell the roses after that? :-)ReplyDelete
@Binu - thanks for pointing it out. Have tweeted the contest announcement.
Please pardon if this is not the right channel to communicate with you. Since I was not able to find the direct link to contact you on this blog, I am writing this as a comment here.
Please allow me to introduce myself as the web admin of Cocodle.com
Cocodle, powered by Google Custom Search, is an initiative towards helping underprivileged and differently-abled children with the revenue generated through online search. We do not ask for any donation but what we ask for from the people is to use our website and help us grow so that we can, in turn help these children even better.
If internet is one of the biggest boon to mankind, we believe that we can, at least share a little of it with those children who never got to see it.
Having said that, we would like to request you to please help us spread the word around. We really appreciate your support.
Brilliant verse on to which I stumbled by chance.ReplyDelete
