Cool Rocking Daddy Missing Libido Blues

 

 

[I] had pretty plumage once.

                                                WB Yeats “Among School Children”

 

A good while back, my libido stole one of my bags,

packed his Hawaiian shirts and leisure suits,

hitched a ride downtown to Calhoun Street

and hopped a Trailways bus to Mexico.

 

Can’t really say I miss him all that much,

that Wicked Wilson Pickett shtick:

 

Uh, you know I feel alright!
Ha, Feel pretty good y’all
!

 

All that preening Mick Jagger wannabe shit.

 

No, as my dead old lecher

Daddy Yeats once wrote,

 

Better to smile on all that smile, and show 

There is a comfortable kind of old scarecrow.

 

Still, it’d be nice to get a postcard, every now and then,

from some bordello somewhere south of the border.
