THE VANISHING ORGAN

Sam Ebenezer
a sad ol' geezer
was lamenting his shrinkage of late:
my worthless ding-a-ling
is a bell without ring
my manhood in diminishing state
 
From whence I salute
is thin as a flute
and soft to the touch as cashmere
I search with persistence
it offers resistance
on nature's call to appear
 
On heeding that call
no waterfall
a few errant droplets at best
where once from the middle
I gushed, now I piddle
and half of my load veers west
 
Both feet on the urn
pushing forth from astern
I chant 'emerge hocus-pocus'
with my punctured esteem
watch the pitiful stream
dwindle to drops as Limp loses focus
 
Our wee-membered friend
wished his size to amend
the stiffness rerouted from his joints
have it rise to occasion
and stand to attention
consulted ol' Doc for his viewpoint:

My snake is dead
no flesh;  just head
lies comatose and useless 
my garden hose
once warmed my toes
now wrinkled, dry and juiceless 

The senile old doctor
by name Alfred Proctor
had most of his wit in absentia
his breath smelt cheesy
Ebenezer felt queasy
Doc clearly suffered from senile dementia
 
Doc's hand took a dip
to just 'neath his ribs 
as Ebenezer voiced his concern
Doc smiled all the while
said:  your hopes are futile
there's no cure for your vanishing organ
 
I lost my virility
before my senility
long mourned my lost pride-and-joy
put my plight to rest
on realizing I'm blessed
to have in hand my own built-in toy

    Funny if you are not a man. Clever if you are a woman. An ego lost in lack luster mode. All due to a lapse in a penal code. Memories come, memories go. lost to a woman's vanity. Allan

    OH-MY-GOD-GIRL!...I could not get thru this until the third try...The vendor scene from the Marx Brother's 'Duck Soup' has the same effect...I actually have to get up and walk away to catch my breath...My two were 'When a Man Loves a Woman: A Male Black Widow's Perspective' and 'Senior Moments' if you'd like to check them out...

    PS: On rare occasions, my ding-a-ling refuses to ring-a-ding-ding so I am forced to make an appointment with Dr. Viagra...

    Now this is what I call entertainment. Thanks for making me smile. It appears you did well against some STIFF competition. Congratulations!

    I could have sworn I've commented on this one before *shrugs*... as I'm usual I'm quite speechless. You describe it all too perfectly... it makes me wonder what you're thinking about a great deal of the time (looks around suspiciously... lol). Witty to the extreme... but definitely not something for kiddies to read... You're just too much Delysia!

    Well done, well done!~(I have enough trepidation about eventually becoming a senior, as is!)~ Strong, creative use of words -- so many great lines. "is thin as a flute/and soft to the touch as cashmere" -- "a few errant droplets at best/where once from the middle/I gushed, now I piddle/and half of my load veers west" (O.o) Ha ha!
