Show Stopper

next time

I will not throw

the fight

or shy from

the limelight

or skip the dessert

or leave at


or ask for


to kiss

my date

with destiny

no, I will

speak up

chin up

and I will

be damned

if I will not

step up

to the podium

and throw

away the speech

and reach

down deep

into my gut

for the real raw

and right stuff

and I will

bare everything


my sold soul

and it will be

like the full monty

swan song

of an aging

Chippendale dancer

whose buttock

could use botox

as he moons

his glittery world

of girls
