Getting Pumped Up to Get Laid
PodPoet

Getting pumped up to get laid
 1
Building muscle to pave the way
 2
 
 
Pounds shed, muscles flaunted
 3
Wanting so desperately to be wanted
 4
 
 
You hate the thought of a shirt
 5
Worked too hard to cover up your work
 6
 
 
Those hard shapes define a lifestyle
 7
Muscles cover weakness...for a while
 8
 
 
But can a sexy new bod fill the hole
 9
Or will something else make life meaningful
 10
 
 
You're a poster boy of the physically fine
 11
Until, one day, you see the first sign
 12
 
 
And to gym workouts you add another regimen
 13
Popping pills, as lesions threaten the skin
 14
 
 
What went wrong, you ask
 15
What mistake
 16
What sin
 17
