A Poem by Trace

a brief remembrance of Hugh Hefner

Image result for hugh hefner



I can’t recall the exact day or year

That I was introduced to what would become

My favorite pastime.


But I can tell you this,

I have been a great fan since I was old enough

To appreciate the beauty


The beauty of the fairer sex,

The beauty of a woman’s body

Gods amazing creation


Yes, I know that sounds strange,

To associate God with nudity,

But he deserves the credit


And it was Hugh that brought that creation

To the masses, to the men and women

To revel in the beauty of the woman.


Many young men learned

More about a woman from his work

Than was taught by parents.


And to this day,

I will appreciate the memory

Of when I was introduced

To Hugh’s magazine.


Playboy was more than just beautiful women,

More than a controversial publication,

It was inspirational


And it was with sadness


When I heard of his passing.

He was a man among men,

And women alike.


He will be missed.

Hugh Marston Hefner (April 9, 1926 �" September 27, 2017)

He brought out the introvert in so many shy and curious young men, a noble eulogy my friend!
