why i am never washing my hands again

January 30, 2008

it's morning
and the liquid soap
dispenser
in the disgusting
men's room
at work
is empty

i ask
why is the liquid soap
dispenser
in the disgusting
men's room
at work
empty

i am told
the liquid soap
dispenser
is empty
because the janitor
was killed
last weekend

it's morning
and the liquid soap
dispenser
is full
at work
in the disgusting
men's room
