Innocence

A virginal banana 
gives birth to 
his inner masculine 
peculiarities 
by peeling back 
the layers of 
his latent 
sexual machinery. 

Self-gratification 
is an insincere 
occupation, 
a contemptuous 
pleasure-seeking 
leisure interest, 
satisfied only 
by the dexterity of one’s 
lust filled imagination. 

Alas, 
he could only 
handle his own 
diminutive stature 
if his blossoming bonanza 
was viewed through 
the magnifying glass 
of a short-sighted, 
armless geriatric. 

Oh, to be a child 
whose soul ambition 
is to play 
doctors and nurses 
with the girl(s) 
next door.
