TRANSCENDENTAL MAN

 

                                      He no longer lives in a dualistic world

                                      And therefore isn't partial to

                                      Sexual discrimination, which he regards

                                      As a regrettable anachronism.

 

                                      He doesn't recognize females as women

                                      But increasingly as 'lesser men',

                                      And expects them both to behave

                                      And dress like himself.

 

                                      He isn't entirely averse to sex with women

                                      But prefers plastic inflatables

                                      Or pornographic models,

                                      Regarding marriage as 'square'.

 

                                      He prefers television to books

                                      And contemplation to meditation,

                                      Since a cross between man and superman.

 

                                      He lives in the city and substitutes

                                      An occasional stroll through the park

                                      For life in the country.

 

                                      He isn't averse to essence

                                      But can only approach it by degrees,

                                      Availing himself of spiritualized appearance.
