Leading a Bachelor’s life


and all it can bring…

Sitting here too hot to roam
or go outside and hike in the sun
instead writing about my life
free of strife as I have no wife
although I do have to admit
that not having one with me is a fit
as I do not share my life very well
by not falling under their spell
a typical bachelor’s life for me
and has been for a quarter century
and I have enjoyed the single life
because it has not had the strife
that living with others does present
a selfish man but so content
please I beg of you don’t get me wrong
I like girls but where they belong
which is not living along with me
but in their own space happy and free
it can be said that I’m already too old
for the physical pleasures that girls behold
with their beauty and grace and looks so sublime
promises of having a wonderful time
alas their beauty is all I can see
as the passing of time has caught up with me
my flesh is weak is all I can say
but the spirit is willing for some other way
it’s hell growing old it has to be said
so many things that no longer can do
but at least I have memories of years gone by
things that I can no longer try
and even though the spirit is willing
the flesh has grown weak and the passions are chilling.
