A Riddle for the Morning

O, they are an innocent few
and frail as morning dew
concerned with what not to do.
Right-out-of-the-package new,
they habitually eschew
the good old raunchy screw
far past the age of twenty-two.
Can you tell me who?
These are the sweet __________.

  1. Are you saying what I think you’re saying? Past the age of 32, give up on it?
    I assume you’re not speaking from a carpenter’s point of view. Who are the lonely few to you? Is this what you classify as humorous creative non-fiction?
