The universe is not only queerer than we suppose,
But queerer than we can suppose.”
The popstar Prince required an operation
For his lips to reach the same destination.
After several ribs were surgically removed
His erotic contortions were greatly improved
And he’d combine yoga with self-gratification.
Were they forerunners of auto-fellatoic evolution?
Pioneering a way of reducing man’s population?
For sensual arias on the skin flute
Can get right down to the root
Of man’s wanton proliferation.
On the walls of the pyramids the God Horus –
The flexibly virile son of Osiris –
Is painted wolfing down his own sperm
Which was done to save the cosmos from harm
And to ensure that the stars stayed in their place.
Do hieroglyphs show the future leaking out
In Horus’s orgasmic, self-loving moment?
Imagine the solution
Being cured by a sperm-gobbling god-poet!
All of these primordial Egyptian Gods of creation
Shaped the world from chaos through self-fertilization.
This is described in the earliest building known
Where Amen, son of Thoth, is shown
To savour the strange beginnings of civilization.
