☆ ☆ Bum Phillips has crapped out! ☆ ☆

Caress my tits tenderly as my lungs are a barbeque pit of hot desire

that engulf my hull in gasoline flames like a fireman afraid to retire

Blue babies need immediate revival as their hope is to again respire

A baby-blue baby is church-mouse quiet and predictably not a crier

and no more disruptive in lifeless form than brain-dead Talia Shire

Alice walks unsteadily from much Chianti this drunk, knobby lady

She's in no condition to answer the needs of teener Bobby F. Brady

Butcher Sam Franklin (Allan Melville) might find the affair shady

In the vein of Hooterville merchant Sam Drucker, actor Frank Cady

If the river is too deep to ford you can go upstream where it's wady

Poet's Notes about The Poem

To believe yourself to be a Being who you are physically incapable of being satisfies the definition of mental illness. To petition a surgeon for an extra limb, a third leg, is an inarguably-insane request. To have an arm died purple is insane. If you were born male, and not ambiguous with malformed male and female genitalia, then you are male. Your brain, musculature, skeletal frame, circulatory system are male. To believe otherwise is unreasonable and illogical. Hormones & surgery cannot make a female of a male. A male cannot be impregnated. The cerebral cortex, the pelvic girdle and so forth, even when vivisected, are easily identified by gender, no matter what mechanical manipulation (surgical enhancement, amputation) had been undertaken.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
