Something for the Weekend
From a market in the Var.
From the lands of far Cathay!
Marco Polo’s oriental paradiso?
Both premise and promise are dark-skinned;
given by a Panyol extra,
gifted in Niçoise hyperbole.
Black wood exotica.
Ivory-tipped; how very Sixties!
Rhinoceros, of course,
the fabled horned horse.
Traded on the Cote d’Azur
for sweet hashish, or something worse.
Ah. underneath the stall instead,
a bedside bonus. The Horn – grated,
inflames a flaccid penis, as irritated
skin increases girth and gusto.
At least that’s what Jean Francois says;
and he should know,
he’s Southern French…
