Can Playboy Stay Abreast-Uhm Afloat? - Poem by Joe Rosochacki
The dynasty of Hugh Hefner is about to crumble down,
Down to the financial ground.
Playboy, with it's bunnies, was the man's choice for its points a view.
From articles that featured headliners from music and sports,
To the jokes and cartoons, and lest we forget the 'buxomy' nude pictorials too!
Hugh Hefner was into mass advertising,
-the monthly rag brought millions of dollars to him
-and a lucrative living of sorts.
From 1953 on, he was driving force in the sexual revolution.
He was the man in the red smoking jacket and a pipe.
Then came along the technological revolution that began his demise.
That was no surprise!
Hugh as to share blame.
For the internet was begotten, which made nude pictures of females,
-along every news account,
Some guys, or in some gals, would have an interest in,
-was at his/her whim, for NOT buying an extra magazine.
Even 'king of smut', Larry Flynt, (who produced 'Hustler')
-who fought many charges for dealing with pornography,
He was the nemesis of Hefner,
-asked the congress to approve a federal bail out the porn industry!
Does he have no shame?
Maxim is doing well, they don't feature front total nudity.
Anyway, Hugh and Larry, the Playboy and the Hustler, respectively,
Are going down a slippery slope not full of cheer in the next year.
The Girls Next Door are going to have live somewhere else,
But not in the near future.
