Poem: The Fertility Question

Apparently
most folks prefer
to live free 
than face 
responsibility
I can't help but notice
all these ring fingers 
are naked 

Meanwhile
more women 
use the gym
than ever before
but 
what can we 
expect 
when the latest
standard of beauty
is the ass 

Numerous men 
can also be found
at the woman's gym 
competing
for the next orgasm
to be splattered
on the floor 
cleaned up 
and forgotten

This is 
an entire
generation
obsessed
by independence 
which may also 
explain 
the bolstering
suicide rate

Toys R Us
closed down 
their doors 
yet somehow
the JEWelry store 
managed
to stay open 

I couldn't imagine
coming home 
to an empty house
year after year 

Nothing
is more sad than
countless years
of sexual endeavors
and nothing
to show for it
