Not Exactly as Advertized
In a popular health magazine he came
across an ad that guaranteed macho men
a cure for a dreaded sexual dysfunction,
and the answer to his many prayers, Amen!
So off he flew to a local fish market
and hoggishly bought the biggest sack
of oysters he could carry – what the ad
claimed was a proven natural aphrodisiac.
And with unquestioning faith that night he shucked
and ate them all until they vanished.
Then hit the sack confident his virility
would be restored like the ad had promised
and sooner than he expected, for in the wee
hours of the morning those oysters had worked
their magic and, yes, he did “get up” but only to zoom
like never before from bed to bathroom!
