The pinnacle of a Potterers lot  
Is to be awarded the Potterers Pot  
It used to be a sweeter dream, we held it in such high esteem  
We’d fill it to the brim with “half and half”  
And all have a sip, it was quite a laugh  
But all that came to a sudden end  
With the coming of the health and safety trend  
Now we worry about Legionnaires disease, or a nasty bout of knobbly knees  
About the germs that may be there  
From someone else’s derriere,  
Can’t see why it’s such an issue  
We wipe it round with a toilet tissue  
But it still has the power to bring great joy, to every Pottering girl or boy  
Oh, that burst of pride, when at last you’ve got  
That lovely EMBLAZONED chamber pot.

Dorothy James
