Not Quite Haiku
his self esteem
is now so low
that even in his fantasies
he is neither Conan the Barbarian
nor Tom Cruise
just a snivelling weakling
who somehow gets lucky
he notes with dismay
that on the Eurythmics' greatest hits
The Miracle of Love
is followed by Sex Crime
his girlfriend's expensive perfume
meant to arouse
made him sneeze and sneeze
his hard-on looked ridiculous
poking through his Spiderman suit.
life moved from being just a Big Disappointment
to being minute by minute
he was desperate to sell his soul
for cash and the Playmate of the Month.
But nothing happened.
Where was Mephistopheles when you needed him?
the problem with life
was that God
was as illogical as His believers.
Mars grew closer than for sixty thousand years
the closer he came to Eternity
the better it felt
