Brother Bollocks
was sure

so sure

that by
60

finally

those
urges

those
obsessions

would have
passed

but almost
every time
that he sees
even a hint
of female
flesh

or suggestive
clothing

or loose
clothing
for that matter

in person

in print

in movies

on TV

on the
internet

as long
as he senses
woman

he is distracted
to the point
of ridiculousness

he can imagine
himself
with any
of them

with all
of them

he longs
to touch

to caress

to taste

regardless
of age

race

weight

what is
wrong
with him?

he knows
as well as
anyone
the carnal
consequences

the disastrous
results
of his previous
relationships

although
at this age
he is
a peek freak
at worst

Brother Bollocks
now has little
hope that 70

80

or even
an unlikely 90
will alleviate
such nonsensical
lust

the original
biological
skin sin

so he
struggles
to guard
his eyes

and prays
for the impotence
of the grave
to finally
deliver him
