Something About Morning Pajamas
When you've been sleeping all night in a warm bed
There's sometimes a playful odor in your pajamas
It's a bit lowlife, but satisfying
It is some sort of fragrant warmth
That your balls created during the night.
It's a mammal delight related
To the way the calf
Loves the cow's udder.
That mammal delight is one of the nouns
Of this earth.
Don't be ashamed, friends.
Don't throw the pajamas in the washer.
Don't open the window;
Forget the Pilgrims.
Think how sweet it is
That advice should come
From a source so deep.
