Thank You, So Much, Peter Pan

Hugh Hefner (b.1926- d.2017) …(May God have mercy on his soul)


"Much of my life has been like an adolescent dream of an adult life. If you were still a boy, in almost a Peter Pan kind of way, and could have just the perfect life that you wanted to have, that's the life I invented for myself."
—Hugh Hefner


“If God is dead, somebody is going to have to take his place. It will be megalomania or erotomania, the drive for power or the drive for pleasure, the clenched fist or the phallus, Hitler or Hugh Hefner.”
—Malcolm Muggeridge




Thank You, So Much, Peter Pan


Thank you so much, Mr. Playboy,
For the things you left behind,.
For the fashion… and the passion (!)
Of the hedonistic mind.

Thank you for the Narcissism…
For the flesh we now hold dear!
For The Self-ish Code of Ethics,
And your lifestyle so sincere!

Thank you for that Me-First Vision
(Sir, you helped to set us free!)
Thank you for the death of marriage
And the end of decency.

Thank you for Pandora’s Box, sir…
You so proudly opened wide.
Thank you for the slipp’ry slope, sir,
And the dark, descending slide.

Thank you for the paganism,
That today we find so “cool”.
It’s the gift that keeps on giving…
It’s our Common Core in school!

Thank you for progressive thinking,
Thank you so much, Peter Pan…
Front and center…still unfolding
Here in Never-NeverLand.



Thank you for the adolescence
That is permanent today.
Thank you for all those abortions…
Sir, you helped to pave the way!

Thank you for the family break-up!
Normalized pornography...
Thank you for the degradation…
Thank you for the poverty!.

Yes, the heart of man is wicked…
Lord, have mercy on us all.
Give us grace to find forgiveness.
Pick us up, please from this fall.
