The Best Seat in the House

Poem about the outhouse describes why it was the best seat in the house.

| Good Old Days

There's a little house here on the farm That's used by one and all.

It isn't much to look at, in fact it's very small.

It has no picture windows, no welcome on the door.

No heat inside to keep it warm, NQ carpet on the floor.

There's only one seat in the house, It's made of old oak lumber.

But still it serves its purpose well, Been used by quite a number.
