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(though of course I’m out of date)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”?
