The older I get
the more I am convinced
that I was put on earth
to serve as a bad example
by a Motherless nature
suffering P.M.S.

I am on a diet of
low moral fiber
while my arteries
race to become
the hardest parts
of my body.

My heart's half shot
legs are failing
I am sometimes frustrated
sometimes panic stricken
by ailing parts and
waning concupiscence.

Frustrated by the first time
I couldn't get it up
the second time
panicked by the second time
I couldn't get it up
the first time.

In my youth
drugs were recreational
now I fear
they're all prescribed
but soon enough
the magic word - "Viagra"

Suddenly drugs will
be recreational again
and I shall dance
half the night away
and fuck away the other half
in delusions of adequacy.

And I will fill my role
serving as object lesson
"poster boy" for
creative hedonism
until they find a cure
for testosterone.

Laffin too hard to review--oh, this is rich--cant' pin down my favorite line, so I'll just love 'em all--wonderfully penned, bitter humor, perhaps?

Keep your testosterone, Rog.. it will "stand" to you in the end. (giggle). This is marvelous.. a bit of a backward glance but the road ahead is shiny as long as you keep writing.. "motherless nature" is by far my favorite line here.. she does get cranky, doesnt she?.. but PMS? nah.. she's a timeless wench with the beauty of leaves in autumn. Love her, Rog.. she will not fail you. Thoughtful write. katy.
