Toilet Paper Palinode

Intending to be tongue-in-cheek and droll
(For every laugh’s a feather in my cap),
I wrote about the toilet paper roll
And evidently caused a major flap!
Fomenting discord never was my goal.
Who knew that people really gave a crap?
There’s over and there’s under; neither’s wrong.
Now brothers, can’t we all just get along?

    LOL, I read yesterdays rhyme and figured you would get a lot harassment. Before we were married, my wife and I discussed all the “important” things; like religion, where to live, who takes out the trash and which way we preferred the tp to hang. Believe me, it is important! :-)

    It’s with great relief that you have softened your position
    Some people believe like it’s their religion.
    Let’s not discuss 2-ply or 3-ply or four,
    (is there even room for 1-ply more?)
    Now, come all, there’s no need to fight.
    Hanging TP either way is right.

    Peace and love are fine by me,
    But my children’ll never wonder,
    There shall be no question of T.P.
    They will know “It’s NEVER under!
