The Lyrics

A bind romance—bad prose, this is;
a bind romance—black hose, switches.
She likes to be tied up like sacks of potatoes,
have cheeks squeezed as if they are tested tomatoes.
A bind romance, he’s the pestle;
to find romance, he’s to nestle
in her mortar: that metaphor’s pretty scant,
threadbare as worn-out pants,
much like this bind romance.

A bind romance has a fellow
who makes romance ways unmellow.
He slaps her like a seal
with a flapping motion.
That wrapping sound stirs in
both of them emotion.
A bind romance might show orals,
but post insults and faux quarrels.
They both say, this must cease
never, both entranced
by the B&D stance.
Icky, this bind romance.
