It's a party and the author's son pops the dreaded question: "What is sex?" The Dad's response is accompanied by humorous definitions of sex by people of different age groups.
"What is this thing called sex, Dad?"
Quizzed, my curious ten year old lad.
Soft music stopped, party-chatter froze,
Menon jolted from his
The pudding hit Mrs.Thomas's chin,
My boss's face beamed a whisky grin,
"Be a shport, Hari, you bumbling ass,"
Liquour spilled from his brimming
"Tell the boy of the birds and the bees,"
"Of Adam-Eve, the birth of babies,"
To you, my friend, yes, you the reader,
I must admit, I am no great leader
Nor much of a father, you may surmise,
I am not a fool, but neither too wise,
To have told the kids of the facts of life;
Of what gets done, when man meets wife.
It may have been the beers in me,
Or the fact that I could nowhere see
My wife, within any earshot length,
That must've been what gave me strength.
"Species Enlarging X-ercise," said I,
Looking my boy straight in the eye,
"Something we do to populate,"
"Strip, stimulate and copulate."
"Simply Ecstatic X-perience," quipped Ted,
And smacked his lips - the sly newly wed.
"Superbly Erotic X-cursion," Joe,
Raised his beer and added, "Ah, what fun,"
"Sweaty, Enervating, X-hausting," Iyer, mid forties,
As an afterthought warned, "And causes disease."
"Slight Erection - X-hilaration!" Nair,
"That's what sex is for grandpas like us."
"But, Dad," cried my boy in despair,
He showed me a form, a questionnaire,
"Please tell me how to get all that in
This little box
marked - Your sex, fill in."
