The well-endowed Adonis
Is Dad without the vim;
The man with wee cojones,
How pleased kids are with him –
He cuddles them with skill and ease,
Has testes that are shrunken peas.
The oarsman at the rowlocks
Whose muscles fairly bulge,
Unless he’s shrunk his bowlocks,
Is not the type to indulge
The infants. No, the man they need
Has tiny balls (think aniseed).
Thus any man may promise
To bomb a country flat,
With testicles like bombers –
But we will see through that,
And leave no children in his charge,
His cobblers being far too large.
