Gipsy Rose Lee
Few things promise more or deliver less,
Like a rat who can pull out of a hat
A long stemmed Rose in a state of undress
Who takes a powder in seconds flat;
Or a stevedore who unloads cargo
That consists of an embargoed tryst
On an imaginary Key Largo
In an archipelago that’s just mist;
Or an email from Nigeria telling you
You have won the heart of Miss Lagos
And sending your bank password in lieu
Of cash is all you do to be her boss.
Sex is Mother Nature’s way to insure
That our precious species will endure.
