GO ON AND TAKE A GOOD HANDFUL

ďGo on and take a good handfulĒ
She said to the trick or treater
So, he went straight for the contents
Of her very well filled sweater
ďThey normally empty my bagĒ
She said somewhat taken aback
ďIím surprised, because for meĒ
He said ďIíd rather empty my sacĒ
ďOhĒ she mused ďthat kind of treatĒ
Aware he didnít want a hand shandy
She added ďYouíd better come in
And you can have the special candyĒ

GETTING ON # 14

OBJECTIFYING

Oh look
A glimpse of thigh
As her legs cross
Vary titillating
But the young girls
Hipster clad
Showing thongs
Fail to titillate.
However, the young woman
In the lemon dress
Illuminated in that shaft
Of golden sunlight
Does excite the senses
Now a well-endowed lass
On an adjacent table
Leans forward suddenly
And her breasts
Rearrange themselves
Delightfully before my eyes
I know Iím objectifying
But I feel no shame
As I sit and view
A curvaceous beauty,
A shapely leg,
Or well-sculptured ankle,
Pert well-formed buttocks,
Or plump or perky breasts
However, I dislike
Tarty or vampy
So, no bare midriffs
Or obscenely short skirts
Less is more in my opinion
So, objectifying or not
I feel no shame
For lecherous viewing
Whereís the sin
In looking
They are Godís creation
When all said and done
Well packaged morsels
Of his finest work
So why would he
Give us such delicacies
If he intended us not to look
So, whereís the sin
In objectifying such delights
Even if I am the Vicar

THE GREATEST LIES OF LIFE

No, your bum doesnít look big in that
Money isn't everything
How funny, I was just going to call you
I'm only going to put it in a little way
I've never done this before
Theyíll ride up with wear
The cheque's in the post
Anticipation is half the fun
This will hurt me more than it hurts you
I promise I won't finish in you
This won't hurt, I promise
No I canít see the join
Uh yes, itís very slimming
