Lord of the Chance

by S.O. Fasrus

Man reached through gap between seats to grope woman on flight to Heathrow Airport—Metro

They grope on the train
and they grope in the sun,
they grope as they smoke
when they’re going for a run—
in the park, in the dark
oh they must cop a feel.
They even have a grope
when they’re out for a meal.

Grope, grope
wherever they may be,
no joke when a bloke’s on a groping spree—
it’s a smack round the chops
if they think they’re groping me
and a knee up the nads if they make so free!
