Ghislaine Maxwell asked a friend to write a creepy poem for Jeffrey Epstein’s 40th birthday which talked about his ’24-hour erections’.
The pedophile’s alleged chief recruiter gave Christopher Mason ‘very specific’ instructions about the ditty, he reveals in a new documentary.
One line read that ‘it’s clear from his smile, the older he gets the more juvenile’.
Another rhymes Maxwell’s ‘affections’ with Epstein’s ’24 hour erections’.
The sign off talked about Epstein, ‘ The naughty boy blushes to think of schoolgirls and all of their crushes’.
In Surviving Jeffrey Epstein, a four-hour docuseries which premieres on Lifetime on Sunday, Mason reads the poem out and says it is ‘so creepy’ because of what he knows now.
He also reveals that Maxwell wrote other poems for Epstein including one in which she called him ‘Silverado’ as if he were a gray-haired cowboy.
Epstein’s 40th birthday would have taken place in January 1993, which is the year before the time period covered by Maxwell’s federal indictment.
She has pleaded not guilty to enticing girls as young as 14 to Epstein for him to rape and sexually assault between 1994 and 1997.
Mason, a British journalist based in New York, says in the film that he has known Maxwell since 1989 when he was introduced to her through mutual friends.
When she moved to New York in 1991 it seemed to him that Epstein had ‘taken the place’ of her father, the disgraced newspaper tycoon Robert Maxwell.
Mason says in the film: ‘He was her boyfriend but she was his Gal Friday.
‘She leapt to the occasion when there was anything he needed she could provide. She hugely expanded Jeffrey’s social universe’.
Whenever Maxwell talked about Epstein there was a ‘flash of excitement in her eyes’, Mason said.
‘She seemed utterly fascinated and thrilled with the life that he offered her and it seemed like she would go to any length to satisfy his whims,’ he tells the film.
When Epstein turned 40 Maxwell asked Mason to write him a song and gave him ‘very specific information’ about what had to be in it.
Mason’s instructions were to come into the party room at the agreed time, sit on the floor and perform the song.
It was a small affair and there were just six men wearing black tie including Les Wexner, the founder of L Brands, which owns the lingerie chain Victoria’s Secret.
As the male guests sipped brandy after dinner, Mason walked in and read the poem which went in part:
‘Poor Jeffrey Epstein is 40, oy vey!
Ghislaine is lavishing him with her affections
She claims he has 24-hour erections
Sounds like he’s busy, now ain’t that berserk
How does he find the time to get off to work’
Mason said there were ‘snickers in the room and it seemed like it was something that was known about him at the time, that he liked younger girls’.
Mason said it was ‘tongue in cheek’ but there was ‘no sense of how utterly depraved his intentions were’.
Later in the documentary he read out another poem apparently written by Maxwell to Epstein around the time he bought his ranch in New Mexico in 1993.
It read: ‘Silverado, Silverado, urban cowboy desperado’.
Surviving Jeffrey Epstein includes interviews with Epstein victims including Virginia Roberts, who claims that Epstein forced her to have sex with Britain’s Prince Andrew when she was 17.
They describe how Maxwell was the mastermind of the sex trafficking operation and that she ran the women who recruited them.
The show’s producers have had to completely rework the fourth episode after Maxwell was arrested on July 2nd, close to the anniversary of Epstein being arrested.
Ricki Stern, who co-directed the project with Annie Sundberg, has said the series was now ‘as much about Ghislaine’s arrest as it is about the women’.
Stern wants the victims’ voice to say that they are going to have their day in court.
She has said: ‘And it’s maybe a different kind of day in court, but it allows them to have their voice in a public arena and to continue to have the press be focused on their stories in a way to make change, to move the dial so that we’re talking about statute of limitations on sexual abuse.
‘Why do we have those, and should we pass laws to get rid of those?’
