NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE CHALLENGE

NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE CHALLENGE

(a POEM ABOUT AGING ADULT ISSUES)

Impotent man fights,

Although he’s dead…to rights…

Wants to relive

What the body can’t give,

Despite enticing sights.

Things just won’t respond

In ways of which he was fond…

Takes too much time

And excessive grind

To  “taste” what is gone !

–Jonathan Caswell

(An aging issues poem)

MORE THAN A MERMAID

MORE THAN A MERMAID

(WARNING—ADULT MATERIAL)

As King David had Abishag,*

He wants a warm sleeping bag…

Some young beauty

For personal duty,

Who won’t leave him holding the bag!

He claims that he’ll be good,

Being unable for wood…

Being able to touch

Would mean so much,

Both ways be it understood.

He’s long past suitable age

To have desires uncaged…

His late night scheme

Is but a dream

Which no one will be willingly engaged!

–Jonathan Caswell

*Abishag…a beautiful young woman selected to provide personal care to the aging King David and to keep him warm at night,  Reportedly, he and she were not intimate with each other.  1st Kings 1:1-4.
