POEM - Lies Hugh Hefner Told Me - By Gary Klein

What sort of man reads Playboy?
The sort of man who skydives
to his African safari,
while sipping single malt,
after walking a mile for a camel.
That sort of man…
Dates several women
named Cyndi, Candy, and Bambi
Who is that man…
who reads “for the articles” and
learns that exploitation is okay and
objectification is culturally acceptable.
Not the shy young man of 18 who…
can only dream to be that man.
The young man who set the bar high
and failed to meet his own expectations.
Not the man who learned…
 late in life
that the authentic man stands out
and is good enough.
What sort of man reads Playboy?
Yeah… fuck off Heff.
