Somebody Is Rotting

It seemed (to me...) to be the very tiniest of gaffes [Kansas Sam]

Or so I thought--then came the raucous laughs [F]

The teacher looked me in the eye; I somehow played it straight [Kansas Sam]

Then later hid myself inside a packing crate [F]

The odor, though, it followed me, as stink is wont to do [Kansas Sam]

I asked my friend who had a cold - he said he smelled it too [Karin]

(Like when you flush repeatedly and still no one can breathe) [F]

This stink that's coming from my pants is causing me to seethe [Padfoot]

It's clear the stench comes from my rear, but I know not the cause [Big Andy]

Perhaps in morning haste I put on someone else's drawers [Beefy ]

And still it lingers--friends and family staying blocks away [F]

I think I'll just crawl back to bed to wait another day [Beefy ]
