Effluvium

Poem By ivor or ivor.e hogg

Silent but deadly in effect
some one has farted quietly
There is no way we can detect
just which one of us is guilty.

The lift is carrying six of us
and everyone looks innocent
Nobody wants to make a fuss
but everyone is discontent..

The lift cuts out as usual
and tempers now begin to fray
We try to keep it casual
but someone is compelled to say.

It’s bad enough to be confined.
Without this stench I would not mind
Six frozen faces all agree
but one is smiling secretly.

At last the lift reaches ground floor
and everyone makes for the door.
The culprit makes his get away
so ends another stinking day.

Ohhhh we know it was you Ivor! Guilty, guilty, guilty! *10 *! !
Fantastic delivery of far-tedious uplifts and downdrafts of a working life.
