Contemporary Retrospect On Sex - Poem by Bill Grace

Sex has always created controversy
Look at King David - Mercy! Mercy!
Far more than bring us children
It riles the body politic
Especially in matters of presidential or public education.
But Madison Avenue is no fool
It uses sex subliminal or direct as a tool
To help us worship with money offerings
To many a commercial ghoul.
It's enough to make a fellow think and think again,
There's more to this sex stuff than simply sin!
So some might hope it will go away
But I'll make a bet that it will stay
And for myself rather than looking for a fray
Acknowledge its great enduring porwer
For evil or good or even play.
