Bum jam
It is called
By silly folk
Who like to call things by cute names when they think it is polite
To avoid mentioning that every person ever born has done a lot of of sitting and shitting
Even the really really polite old ladies who glow not sweat
So why call shit
A name like
Bum jam

Author notes

An entry for a contest, I don’t usually do form poems, but I have a splitting headache and needed my mind taken off it and work for a bit.
