She goes by many names around the world,
and shares a different experience with every lady and girl,
but many of us know her as ‘Aunty Flow’,
and oh boy, sometimes she can ruin your panties and clothes.
She’s seen as a blessing and often a curse,
because of the knock she has on your purse.
From cups and sponges to tampons and pads,
these are just some of the things Aunty Flow needs you to have.
Sadly, some don’t have the right things to deal with Flow’s mess
And that makes her visit even more of a stress.
For those who do,
have a tampon or few,
Please don't dispose of them down the loo.
A clogged toilet that can lead to a flood,
is NOT something to deal with when we’re dealing with blood.
A clean, tidy, bathroom bin,
is what you should dispose of your menstrual products in.
Wrap them in toilet paper,
chuck them in - “See ya later!’
Washing your hands goes without saying,
and wipe the seat if blood goes straying.
Give a fellow girl a hand,
If Aunty Flow comes to town unplanned.
