With creaking joints and countless pills,
Shapely girls cause no ignitions.
At night, he kissed his C-PAP’s lips—
Goodbye, nocturnal emissions.
In the backyard, he built two tubs,
Old-spiced and combed with Vitalis
He trolled on-line with youthful bait
And stocked Viagra, Cialis.
The evening came for her to come!
The recommended dose? Ignored.
She stood him up and never came;
Four hours swollen like a gourd.
The cause of death: “Priapism
Induced by overdose of bliss.”
TOO MUCH RIGOR
TOO SOON MORTIS
