Poem: Karen Alkalay-Gut. Sex Maniac


When he reads in the papers,

Man Killed in Car Crash,

he thinks in sorrow:

one beautiful cock,

two beautiful balls,

forever ruined.

And when he hears on the radio,

Five Slaughtered in Ambush,

he thinks in anguish:

five beautiful cocks,

ten beautiful balls,

food for worms.

But when he hears the announcement,

5,000 Slain in Battle,

he can only say

5,000 cocks, 10,000 balls

5,000 cocks, 10,000 balls

over and over.
