Remember our surreptitious rendezvous when
you were my sister’s best friend?
I liked you immensely then though
some misguided scruples kept us apart.
Fifteen years later now I have no such qualms
The health club no longer exists and
I am convinced that round is a shape.
Though I have serious competition from nubile things,
I keep you deep in the freezer of my heart and home
When my ever-suspicious husband goes to work
and the kids have been packed off to school,
loneliness strikes and I crave your molten touch.
I seek you out and though my waist is no longer shapely
Nothing holds me back from sampling your ample delights
When passion has been sated, I vow to be good again
till the next time…
And then the prompt turns up
There you are in your silken, brown glory
covering a naked lady
and I succumb to temptation
