Poem #321 of 365

I took issue with my tissue,
which reeked of a strong
chemical smell straight
out of the package.

So I had a talk with Brandy,
and she responded
with professionalism,
no bathroom humor
for her.

So now Fed Ex is picking up my bathroom tissue,
in a special envelope mailed to my house,
and I wonder if the
world's going to the toilet
if flagrant saboteurs are
dousing toxic fragrance
on my Angel Soft rolls.

[From "Brandy", a consumer response specialist, Georgia-Pacific, Atlanta, Georgia:
