The Bangor Police Department's Facebook page features an 'Ode to a Commode' that was left in the road.

It's not unusual for Police Officers to come across a 'Dead Skunk in the Middle of the Road,' and maybe even start humming the song by that name, recorded by Loudon Wainwright III. But, what do you sing when you come across a Dead Toilet in the Middle of the Road?

Sergeant Tim Cotton with the Bangor PD may not have a melody worked out, but his poem "Ode to a Commode in the Road' might just make a great follow-up song for Mr. Wainwright! Once again, we thank the Bangor PD for entertaining us, while also enlightening us about some of the more unusual aspects of police work. It's not all about drug dealers and shoplifters. Sometimes, it involves cleaning up other people's unusual messes!
