Man to man

I’ve always tried, dear son of mine,
to speak to you directly,
but your latest piece of news
makes me speak more circumspectly.

Not for me to say, of course,
I guess it takes all kinds,
and who am I to judge
what you do in your own time?

Only, try to see it my way
(though of course I’m out of date)
but some things go a bit too far
(remember Uncle Kate?)

I’m sure you know your own mind, son,
and who knows? you could be right:
“Goats can be very loving”,
but “as in man and wife”?
