Drinking Yukon Red in the Pit,
beneath the painting of a chorus girl
pleasuring a Mountie.
Jamie, Dude, for so many reasons
that picture, while hilarious, won’t fly.
I explain the Mountie and chorus girl
are in a loving relationship and a canvas
of him down on her exists also.
Something better lit and with significantly
less blowjobbery would be appreciated.
Put that fellatio
in a poem.
