They Call You Daddy and Mummy
They call you daddy and you nod
smiling like a child tickled
and the tickling so pampers you
you become a child at their Breasts.
They call you mummy and you smile
like a teenage girl being wooed
you smile and smile and lose yourself
to trapping tongues of praise.
You pose yourself as their shepherd
but while true shepherds shepherd their sheep
you waylay yours from your pool-pit
and in fear they all shepherd you.
