People Need Their Orgasms
By Arlene Corwin
Or am I wrong?
Fasting, chastity, chastising,
What are Catholic priests advised?
The song of romance –
Does it need to be sung?<
The manly body’s hung to spring,
And once the spring has sprung
So simple is the law of organism’s orgasm.
People of both genders need; they simply need.
It isn’t greed, it isn’t lust;
More itch that must be scratched,
And when the scratch is scratched
The itch relieved and on the run,
So simple is the order of the organism’s function.
I suppose some do not need.
What is their need instead?
“Moses supposes his roses are noses,
Moses supposes erroneously...”*
Maybe this poet’s erroneous too.
Mistaken hypothesis specious, inaccurate,
Flawed in its reasoning. Simply untrue.
*From Singin’ In The Rain
