a poem by John Rocco

My Cock Rages On

I stole this great title
from the TV show

It's the song of
Gannicus the gladiator
Champion of Capua

who always sings it drunk

after mighty contests
gaining glory for his
house of gladiators
and the Roman who
owns him.

I steal this title
tonight and every night
when I enter the Arena
fighting for glory
laughing at death
cuckolding fate
banging on
the origin of the world

with side effects including
flushing, headache,
blurred vision

and if your erection
lasts more than
4 hours
please call your doctor.
