The Alfresco Moment

 A butler asks, will Madam be having her morning coffee
 If you would be so good as to lift me out of my bed to
the veranda I would be more than willing to imbibe coffee
Shall I ask the Master to join you for coffee alfresco, Madam? But my nightgown's so sheer he might see my pubic delta alfresco.
And being a woman of wealth I have the loins of a goddess.
While you, being but a servant, have the loins of a child's teddy bear.
Yes, have the Master join the alfresco moment.
He might just as well be informed of my pubic delta, it's not a state secret.
Besides, because of his wealth he bears the organ of a bull, while you, being but a lowly servant, have the loins of a toy.
Very good, Madam .
