New Orlean's-Dead Frieda's Brothel

by krys123

The author has placed a warning on this post for sexual content.
New Orleans is a fascinating place,
and people get lost there without a trace.
Mr. Hagan's profession was in sales,
and out on the road he enjoyed his gals.

He'd go to the shady places in town,
where nobody knew him from all around,
and at Dead Frieda's he'd find his love there,
and his lies were safe 'cause they didn't care.

Here, Dead Frieda's fancy parlor of lust,
was a place that most men would never trust,
another close friend to ever go there,
and most likely make all others beware.

 At this lonely time, Halloween he came,
the girls wore costumes and things weren't the same.
He was surprised that most of this was free,
and in that night he thought this quite seedy.

He didn't think anything of it then,
'cause he was lustful looking at women.
He felt something peculiar going on,
and didn't feel like a respected John.

Going to his room he heard something odd,
like something being said that was like fraud,
and what he heard had made him more alert,
but forgot all when she took off her shirt.

Inside the room she had poured him a glass
of some bourbon then she showed him her ass.
Instead of being flustered and heart raised,
he was kinda woozy and somewhat dazed.

He woke up on an altar, fully nude,
his hands being tied which he thought was rude.
His eyes still blurry and him half awake,
he saw them dressed in robes that looked quite fake.

But there was nothing fake going on here,
and he was surely disturbed and felt great fear.
Then he heard whistles blow and they scattered,
the cops arrived and they booked him a satyr.

He never went to New Orleans again,
hoped his wife never asked him about then,
in the bad Bayou where things blew his mind,
and hopefully it would be all left behind.
