Now You Know
New studies reveal
Male babies get erections in the womb
on the average of five times a day.
Deeper inside their Mother is their little fetus boner
than their actual Father’s manly stud-meat
Closer to their Mother’s heart
is their little fetus boner
than their Father’s actual giant hard-on
Too bad, too bad a Father can’t have
the miniature living boner of his unborn son
or the miniature living vagina of his unborn daughter
Too bad a Father can’t give birth to a penis
from his penis
the way a Mother can give birth
to a vagina from her vagina.
If you had time-machine X-ray vision
you could see inside your Mother
pregnant with you,
the little baby-to-be-that-is-you
has a boner.
Not till now does it dawn on you
You really had erections before you were born,
That your penis was alive and excitable
before you even knew what a boy or girl was,
before you ever saw your face or penis,
before you ever saw the outside world
or had a name or a personality
or daydreamed being a bard,
your little member went from limp to hard
a thousand times
inside your Mother.
