Once upon a time
Back to - up to!
Oscar Wild trial
Both MEN and WOMAN
Walked with arms hook
Were not in intimacy! NO!

If so - hand-holding - that's intimacy!
Arms hook - that insured - the two walked instep!
Sadly - after Oscar Wilds trial - men became paranoid!
Fearing arms hooked - would be misjudged! Misunderstood!
Now I walk rather fast - despite - needing a walking stick!
Mind - we both walk with sticks in hand!

Sponaneosly - he hooks my arm - to slow me down!
Then unhooks - subconsciously - worried - on how passers bye
Will interpret - seeing such a site!
Sad how it still is - after all these - years how it still is!
