    The model did not want people to see his short comings.

    THE NUDE COLOSSUS

    Just like the brazen giant old Greeks made.

    With naked limbs in fifth position posed;

    Here at our gates (to immigrants now closed).

    A mighty he-man with a sword, whose blade

    Is the sharp edge of reason, now betrayed.

    Chauvinist’s Father, here he stands exposed.

    Prepared to put some pants on in a raid…

    The image looks aged and distressed from having been kept for several years in the artist’s wallet.

    He had heard he’d be getting Men’s Spanx.

    Now he thinks it was rude

    that he’s not only nude,

    but repeatedly smacked on his “flanks.”

    Behold the artist’s friend, Maury

    Depicted “a posteriori”..

    At the artist’s behest

    We’ll seek no further, lest

    We discover “the rest of the story”.

    “Butt soft – what light through yonder window breaks?”

    Two rosy cheeks – like two rare, juicy steaks…

    Yet ‘tis no “Juliet” – it is a “Jules”!

    Coyly concealing his most precious jewels

    He bids the drooling painter to reveal

    Two buns – which are the farthest thing from steel…

    Larry never objected to a good paddling when he deserved it but being made to stand in the corner was a punishment too far.

    This page happened to show up alongside a Jennifer Fisher ad. The juxtaposition implies a shift change in the models’ schedules: one’s coming in “Hi, Jen!”- as the other’s dressing to leave—“All yours.”
