Well i think we can all tell from reading the comments what demographic
this particular poem offends......
people need to stop being so sensitive and look past the crude-ness of it
to see what makes it great and i think the poet from fiji said it best as
to why it is

I think those that confuse prettiness with substance might not get this
one. It's the same theme as "Blackbird", really: the soft side of the
hard-ass. Bukowski was a tough guy to whom nothing was sacred, but he gets
so defensive of his poetry. I think the contradiction and confusion are
what make it so meaningful.

Well, then...
I think I'm getting more and more disappointed with each of Bukowski's
poems. He's quite contradictory, and I regret to say that I find his poems
lacking in substance. In the indomitable words of a famous pig, "That's
all, folks."
