Over the last three years,
three women tried to steal my sperm
one was true , she really loved me
she wanted to birth my baby,
I agreed cause I loved her

The other two said
they were on the pill
They just lied
Iím telliní you this
cause I know youíre concerned
youíre my very best friend
and I have to get it off my chest

And Iíll tell you right now:
I forbid you to put this in a poem,
I have dominant genes
for some recessive disease
that although I donít have it
my children will

Almost all the men in my family
are blinded by this malady
Itís a plague that eats away their sight
It starts in mid to late thirties
theyíre stoned blind by fifty

So when Renee, the love of my life
says she wants to have my babies
I had a feeling I never had before:
that overwhelming primal urge
to shoot my sperm within her loins

and watch it swell into a baby
but when we tried
the seed failed to fertilize
And I discovered I was sterile

GOD HELP ME, I WAS DESPONDENT
EITHER WAY, I COULDNíT WIN GENETICALLY

Now Iím brokenhearted
Renee I loved and wouldíve married
But she returned to her former lover
and implored him
to seed her female garden

Since then Renee begged me
to remain her friend
and I did because I
didnít want her to think
I wasnít man enough to do that
And to this day
I still love her

Now, Iíve got three to take her place
But donít worry,
Let me set your mind at ease
I canít be tricked into
being a blind progenitor
and I mean that both ways

I know I should be grateful
But none of them excite me
And although itís satisfying,
Iím very lonely
for the woman of my dreams ††††††
