My goodness, gracious me,
it cannot possibly be:
the Doctor’s new shipmate
was actually seen to osculate
the Time Lord in the Tardis.
But was it an innocent kiss?
In the light of that episode
I feel spurred to write an ode
to record the mixed reactions,
with some advocating sanctions
whilst others, giving approval,
speak of the series’ renewal.
Purists are known to profess
they’re sure the Doctor is sexless
and a notion that they try to flog
is that he doesn’t need to snog.
As for me, I am not at all wise
where progress eventually lies.
