Must’ve missed something along
the track – compared with other
blokes I’m backed with a similar
tally in arms and legs & a bit of
brawny tissue to pose with but,
& get it ‘straight’ poseurs, not a
single tat*, which wouldn’t make
me more-or-less all or anything

Let me guess, the tats a symbol
of manhood beset by girly visions
of making one look better; then 

you’d agree it’s a waste if worn
attest something in place of
an already missing character
