I have one of the best penises of my generation
Being as it is representative of all the optimism and fortitude
The age requires yet lacking none of the pragmatic rectitude
Necessary to create a new world -
A world of tolerance
A world receptive to brave new ideas
No matter how scary or unorthodox they might appear
At first glance.
Ah, the hopefulness -
Even this far along,
Even here in the long thick middle of my life.
Mind you I am not a young soldier,
The eager, loyal, idealistic infantryman
Marching among thousands (thousands thousands!) of others
Towards that common if violent dream.
Instead I, my penis and I,
Iconic, symbolic, avuncular,
Because I am a nice guy whom everyone knows and wants to meet.
