My prostrate

 

has been great

 

I owe it much pleasure

 

Would that it live forever.

 

 

Alas, this gland of mine

 

now finds itself in decline

 

So says a man

 

who does not want to be less than.

 

 

The diagnosis of a tumour

 

has cut into my humour

 

While I know I am not alone

 

I feel nervous about a future unknown.

 

 

I say to my prostrate

 

this situation does not make me irate

 

Even less do I feel hate

 

at  this turn of fate.

 

 

That said, I would prefer

 

that this gland so dear

 

would be less on my mind

 

and more at the service of womankind.
