Poem - Machismo Explained

The poem “Machismo Explained” is a sarcastic tongue-in-cheek examination of courting privilege.

Machismo Explained

Was pretty put on this earth
to tantalize or to curse?
this is the question of the day
while I bend my knee to pray

when I see the lovely prance
do their sexy little dance
I ask the God above for peace
to tame the passion with relief

these temptations are enough
to boost libido to the top
without an avenue to relieve
the inner pressure in my sleeve

what's been prompted should be spent
this is the law of viral men
not to waste the evoked seed
knowing life may be conceived

still my conscience begs for good
asking why I would be lewd
there is no fault in splendor's face
even if I'm drawn in haste

so that those ends I'll withdraw
hold frustrations in my paw
release what God has ordained
with machismo now explained.
