THE WONDERFUL WORLD

In Disneyland, you have to search
to find a toilet.
There’s one on Main Street, U.S.A.,
and one among the South Sea Island shops.
But woe betide you in Tomorrowland
or out on yesterday’s Frontier.
It’s as though toilets were added
         as an afterthought—
something not needed in a world so clean,
with patrolling regiments of close-cropped boys
snapping up dirt with dustpan-brooms.
Why, even the horses pulling Main Street cars
         know how to hold it in.
