Celibate - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

...and you, sir?
Your opinion of Sarah?

'Sarah who? '

The one and only.
The one running to be a heartbeat away,
Let's say,
Creating mental challenges
Unlike any ever experienced in our lifetimes.
Comeon, please...
We don't have all day!

'I'm still adjusting to the fact,
She has not been declared a new Disney character.
The hype has her as if she's a new attraction.
A new ride to try featured at an amusement park.
And people are getting hooked and can't quite get enough!
She's like a new drug offered to ease the pain...
Or horrific screams one may choose to accept the scene.
She's the...'

Once again...
Your opinion before the election begins!

'I'm one of those who says 'no' to drugs.
And I have found an alternative for me that works! '

And that is?

'For me...
It is like having sex with someone I have just met.
And I choose to admire from a distance.
Deciding to remain celibate,
And disease free.'

I don't quite see the analogy.
I do understand your desire to give it up,
To someone you feel you can trust...
To honor your wishes,
Until you are ready to expose your lust!
