Medical Intervention - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

When the pious man in the dark mission
had to make a most awkward decision
would he cut with his saw
that embarrassing flaw
it was known as the circumcision.

So the little boy started to scream
when he noticed the white-coated team
they were after his Schlong
but the logic was wrong
'cause it never is what it may seem.

To this day there are doctors who feel
that some boys are unable to peel
that small flap in all boys
that which never annoys
it's a most ill-considered old Spiel.

Leave what God has put on with his hands
do not worry about your cut friends
it is one warming cover
and the joy of your lover
so resist those pathetic demands.

When the winter cold blows at your jeans
and you are in your puberty teens
you will praise your restraint
and would have no complaint
keep it on there by all honest means.

If you leave it you will need no healing
don't accuse any doctor of stealing
they will use it for dishes
and to feed their gold fishes
but you boost all your sexual feeling.

Many nerves are in that part of skin
so the first time you make your way in
you will hear heavy guns
as you come all at once
the sensation is better than sin.

    my mother said that when i was done as a lad, they used my excess foreskin
    to build me and my friends a teepee so i could play in it as a boy

    Warm regards AJS
