PD159. Not the straight poop

That marvelous wit, Dorothy Parker, may have inspired this one:
There was an old fellow of Pittwood
Who never was able to shit good.
He'd leave small deposits
On shelves and in closets,
As a very small pup or a kit would.

Her poem, Despair in Chelsea, reads
    Osbert Sitwell
    Is unable to evacuate his bowels properly
    His brother, Sacheverell,
    Doubts if he ever'll.
