And we all have one.

This brain,
the only one I know.
It can either start
or stop the show.
One second positive,
two seconds negative.

Very harassing,
sometimes almost embarassing.
The body or the brain,
which causes the most drain?
Feed the body something good to eat,
the brain becomes hard to defeat.

It contantly rides the sex thought,
might as well forget naught.
Sooner or later,
the brain becomes dictator.
It issues the body commands,
afterwards tries to wash its hands.

Too late,
already entered the gate.
Then comes the regret,
wishing you'd never made the bet.
Then you go bet again,
keep betting until you lose or win,
The body takes a beating,
but the brain keeps on eating.

It will eat you,
if you don't feed chew.
You'll get all skinny,
won't have a penny.
Because of the brain,
sometimes we lose,
sometimes we gain.

But we can't do without.

So, G. What is wrong with sex? Hummmm.
Ha! Just because everyone has a brain doesn not mean they are being used. You've seen that, my friend, in your work.
