The Junior Girls’ Toilets by Grace Finlay (Highly Commended)

In the Junior Girls’ Toilets there is gossip and chat
Gossip and chat
Gossip and chat

As well as the gossip and chat
There is glug in the toilet
Glug in the toilet
Glug in the toilet

As well as the gossip and chat
Glug in the toilet
There is screaming and shouting
Screaming and shouting

As well as the gossip and chat
Glug in the toilet screaming and shouting
There is nonsense
Nonsense, nonsense and plain old nonsense

Because of the gossip and chat
Glug in the toilet
Screaming and shouting
And the nonsense, nonsense, plain old nonsense
That is why I look forward to Thursday afternoons when the Junior Girls’ Toilets are being cleaned
And I get to go to the Senior Girls’ toilets.
