Sonnet: Man on Woman

How I wish men could live like animals,
Whose instinct isn’t fucked over by thoughts.
The sperm and egg of wolves or of camels
Are simply mixed when creatures get the hots.
But man demands his eyeballs must be pleased
And then we have to talk for hours on end!
For dinner and a movie, being teased
And judged upon the money we might spend.
Yet, I do not want to be a hippo
Without the joys of civilization.
Without cigars or Beaujolais nouveaux
And seduction with my copulation.
To love a female and hear her laughter,
Give a God damned happy ever after.
by Susan B. Reinhard
