In honor of the Composting Toilet kickstarter, Poo to Peaches, I wrote this Poo Haiku (Pooku??). I know you can too! Let your CT flag fly!

Haiku is 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables.

Straining... waiting for
Nutrient dense excrement
To leave my backside

I can't pass (no pun intended) a shot at a haiku... This just off the top of my head (so to speak...)

Contemplating poo
resolved by fermentation
to calm my movement

Poo, adieu, little bit,
tiny little piece of shit,
nurturing the world.

Slurp and slop, kitchen mop,
Willow trees a poop beast be,
Eating like you an' me.

Adieu, adieu, pee-ew,
glistening steaming pile o' poo,
fueling trees and the seas.

A mound o' poo, thank you!
Rolling o'er the hills wi' me and you,
Sings the dung beetle

Bending over on knees,
plop, kerpuddle, poo a stew,
teaming with life and pee.

-I made these intentionally ambiguous.

Corn peas what not grew
consumed by me and you so
all fall down as poo
