life of sex

The Life of Sex. 

We do live in a sex obsessed world, if we see 
two men in an animated discussion we assume 
they must be gays, or if women, lesbians.  
In the old days when two men shared a hotel
room they were sharing the cost. 
How would you like to wake up one morning
and be the world riches man and eighty five
wearing shorts married to a woman forty years
younger than you with big knockers and slim 
body… but you would still be 85?
 Or wake up, sleeping in a cardboard box in
a supermarket´s doorway, and are told to piss 
off, guards speak like that, and be only twenty?
It is all about sex and how much it costs, when
you need it the most it is not available; when
you are old and can pay for it, you can´t do it.  
The world speaks about sex and sex but forgets 
the most important thing in life is called love.

    Pertinent and profound subject matter... In the USA, also a woman must be thin as a 10 year old to be thought desirable. (this is on the verge of child molesting to my Nordic thinking) Love and respect which were the key human traits a hundred years ago, have been sacrificed on the altar of sex--for financial reasons--honor doesn't make any advertising money....sex does...especially illicit sex....your poem says it in a kinder way than I would!

    Well I'm glad you finally figured that out. (just kidding). "Or wake up, sleeping in a cardboard box in a supermarket´s doorway, and are told to piss off, guards speak like that, and be only twenty? I can't stand that picture; but for the grace of god and all.
