BIG QUESTION (FOR ADULTS)
If he had a lad or lass,
The question might very well pass…
When in their teens,
What do these words mean?
Could he explain without being crass??
Speaking of these feelings inside,
Will this turmoil never subside…
It’s getting so hard
Not to hide in our yard,
Stay at home, never going outside?
Do men have to control always
From the smallest titillation the craves…
Are women the same,
Playing the game…
Giving into the loudest of raves?
His son and daughter know,
There is no way he can show…
Them all his knowledge
Despite his college,
Some day he must let them go.
Would they listen anyway
To what the “old man” would say…
Their buddies and friends
Where each attends
Want them to investigate the fray.
As adults we keep learning
The best way for that inner burning…
To find expression
In art or transgression,
While in their graves, are our forebears turning?
