Rainbow Boy
jenakajoffer

he told me this morning how his woody
 1
peeks from his pj's;
 2
says it puts him on his back
 3
while his eyes float in the sunlight,
 4
puss tickling his balls with its whiskers.
 5
 
 
he points to the sky, says he makes big bows
 6
that arc across his thighs,
 7
bending light around his cowboys
 8
like a sexy lasso--
 9
 
 
says I ain't seen nothin'
 10
till he fills my mouth with skittles-
 11
says he'll show me his black magic
 12
if I let him put gumdrops in my sparkle box.
 13
 
 
told him I was an 80's girl
 14
and always loved to see a rainbow,
 15
that I'd give him a short go
 16
if he had unicorns in his pot of gold,
 17
 
 
and he said
 18
"rainbows are overrated"
 19
 
 
and I said
 20
"so are boners".

I can't fault this! What an excellent piece of ribald humour! And what a conversation!
 — nemo

thanks nemo, i'm happy to see you are making your way around the site.  glad you like this poem and found the humour in it; it's also a bit of a sentimental piece for me.  "bill" was born shortly after this poem.
