My cousin Wilber built an outhouse,

But it’s not like all the rest,

Its varnished oak, cedar lined,

And adorned with the family crest.

 

He’s got tubular vents on top

And a wind direction sock,

Copper hinges on the door

With a matching, bolted, lock.

 

There are marble steppingstones,

Inlaid with phosphorus trim,

To guide Wilber safely there

And safely home again.

 

The solar panel interior light

With a battery backed-up ceiling fan

 And a wireless connected internet link

Brought together a perfect plan.

 

His padded throne is satin covered

In marbled shades of green

And if he wants to read, or wipe,

There’s House Beautiful Magazine.
