Playboy Extraordinaire? (1926-2017)

Hugh Hefner – well known ladies' man
An Aries in Chicago born
Who oozed with charm, no 'also ran'
Creator of a softer dawn.

Who brought spice to dull Fifties lives
With Playboy magazine,
Sex fuelled its meteoric rise
A sybaritic dream!

Demand soon far outstripped supply
Its centrefolds - pure art
The Swinging Sixties' battlecry
A magazine – with heart!

At 91 - his bolt is shot
And Playboy is no more
But Hefner's was a happy lot
With a high ranking score!
