When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the areas of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy

sew their funzalo
where it will be long enough
and won't show too much;
a careless seamstress finds that
ma's funzalo doesn't fit

if you would keep your hands on

or you’ll spill your drink

with their heads stuck in the sand;
they are all a bray-zen bunch

and their heads are not
buried somewhere in the sand;
they're in their large derrieres

Their large derrieres
are covered with big pockets
which the like to fill
with money from certain funds
from the special interest gropes




No Daniel, I didn't mean "groups".

enhanced derrieres
are only for the looking
not for attracted fingers

attracted fingers
with all her Rubenesque curves
and the thought lingers
in my mind but lack of nerves
cause tears as the eye observes

female stars flaunt each blessing
which no one refutes

I’d rather be caressing
