Bathroom Monologue: “How do you put out a fire with a can of gasoline?” –a friend

“Make sure the can is dry,
then use the flat bottom to blot out the flames.
Like a human being,
even if it’s filled up with something useless or dangerous,
it can still be put to good use.”


  1. Now that's thinking outside the box—or can! Hahaha… runs away

  2. I don't have any arguments about the use that a can of gasoline could encompass, but there are some people whose only use is as a dreadful warning. Which doesn't justify their existence as far as I am concerned.

  3. Hi there John -- somehow, I enjoyed the literary simplicity of this little ditty. The alternative uses of a gasoline can (full or empty) should more often be the subject of poetic muse. :)
