Back the Clock
it known, I do not jest,
need to get this off my chest
female would say 'off my breasts,
is if she were like Mae West.
looked on them as her "hope chest"
female will, of course invest
plunging gowns and all the rest
hopes that she can then attest
bulging eyes, we've passed the test.
be it known, I can suggest
I'm a male with some unrest.
if you will, at my behest,
lend an ear while I divest
of something I protest.
females get to proudly show
beauties that they have in tow,
cleavage plunging oh so low
by that show begin to sow
seeds that cause a man to grow,
male must never ever, 'NO'
the gems he has below
one time cod-peice had to go.
longer can a good man crow
it's not true with the fauna though
stag has antlers, not the doe.
so, it's well that you should know,
time for men to holler 'Whoa"
the cod-peice", and bestow
odds men favored long ago.
good for Jane is good for Joe.
