A simple poem

Ah…What a beast have I become
A beast
A beast
A lovely one
A fool with poison on my tongue


A heap of all the books I’ve read
My books
My books
My sexual bed
With ceiling fans beating overhead


And coursing through the telephone wires
My words
My words
A raging fire
Proving all other poets liars


So many little wooden gods
They watch
They watch
With solemn nods
And how I envy these golden rods


Now shake and shiver with every glance
A cynic
A cynic
Of this romance
A believer when striped of shirt and pants


So twist and squirm upon your floor
The beast
The beast
Is at your door
And you his master, lover, whore

Ah, it’s nice to see that there are still men around can remain in touch with their ‘feminine side’ (without over nurturing it).
Nothing wrong with a poisoned tongued fool, my advice: turn off the ceiling fan, stop the coursing, stay a cynic but give in to the beast!!

That was brilliant Dan! just one question: Did you mean "striPPed of shirt and pants" are you just really into pinstripes? I liked your polkadot tears song.

Yeah..thanks joe....I discovered my error once it was sent...I should proof it better. And will I ever live down that polkadot thing? And was it me?...I don't could be forgiven for thinking I have a fetish for fabric patterns.

Dan, Yes "Polka Dot" was you indeed. I like this one however. I myself have a thing for pinstripe. I understand your fetish.
