What Am I?
I don't have hands to play with dolls, or balls, or kiddie things.
I don't have a mouth to talk on cell phones or floss my teeth.
I don't have babies, so don't give me diapers or wipes.
I have no pets, so don't clog me with litter.
Chemicals and solvents won't keep my pipes clean.
If you're not giving me fruit, I don't want the label.
I don't have a face, so I'll pass on the tissues and swabs.
I don't have nails to paint and clean off, so keep the cotton balls to yourself.
I'm full of water so I certainly don't smoke, so cigarette butts are useless.
Ooh, coffee grounds! Is the maker included? I didn't think so. I don't want them either.
Have you guessed it yet? I hope you did.
I'm a toilet, not a trash can!
