MATHEMATICAL EQUALITY OF SEX


                                    MATHEMATICAL EQUALITY OF SEX

                                     In a scholarly rag the other day

                                  absurdity came blazing in my way--

                                   drivel,  i knew but tripped my mind
 
                                   (like a shoe stumbled over, left behind)

                                   "Lovers Lie"--a fact kids know--

                                   but now deemed science--books say so--

                                   the fact amused me--made me pause

                                 was why it mattered--what's the cause?

                                   when asked about love acts and mates

                                     (tho chastity's unhinged it gates)

                                    both males and females fib--it's said

                                 (tho now--who keeps the score in bed?)

                                      males multiply for grander fame

                                  while females play division's game....


                                 which proves--with textbook certainty--
                                    we've reached--in Math--equality!

    thanks for your comment...i must admit that i felt rather ridiculous to spend such time on a crazy topic....but, it struck me that if a writer can spend time writing about it, i certainly can spend time commenting....and it struck me funny at how ridiculous we ALL are when it comes to keeping score with sex! thanks for taking the time to comment! v
