Coitus Interruptus

After a brew-up when the sun's behind
the mountain ridge, my wife frets
about the double Dutch that I speak:

"This world no more bubbles up with miracles.
Oh, what the hell do you think of me, dear?
I ain't someone who freezes you out of passions.

"Stop all that nagging; we had better keep
our lust like a snake's coils at ease.
Why should you know of goddamn labour pains

"when you see this world's a place
for muggers blazing like politicians
our raucous monsters under the tarpaulin?

"No, parents we won't be of devils and liars.
Honey, I'm no flaming idiot; and you know
Your sobs do tug at my heartstrings."
