Why buy the cow, they used to say,
If you get milk for free?
Who needs relationships at all
When there’s pornography?
Reality’s an awful mess,
Requires compromise –
But fantasies are bargain priced
For ready willing guys
For what we want so badly,
Is right there – to make us new men:
To have human connection without
Having to be human
And maybe all this tends to make
Our ‘loves’ feel lost and quite small:
To find that what we want from them
Is really not them
