A Dream Song.....Sort of

A number of years ago, I knew a man who drank too much, aged very rapidly, and died prematurely. It  was suggested to me that it all resulted from his coping very poorly with aging, and the loss of his active sexual life.

A Dream Song

Hughie’s bathroom mirror has informed him
that young women are no longer prospects,
except going the financial route. 

Cognizant of that barren future, he considers his options:
a.       Pubs (without bouncers)
b.      Theatre
c.       Restaurant
d.      Sky Sports
e.    Ballroom Dancing

In e, he recognizes suicidal desperation:
a suicide he’ll achieve most painlessly
by spending long hours in a.
