roe vs wade poem # 1

it's no new idea aristophanes
wrote lysistrata in far-ancient
greece here is my clever plan:
crank up my chastity belt factory
hasn't had much biz in recent times
women'd hold the keys of course
no lovey stuff = no pregnancies so
no need for abortions I bet judges
in power would cave pretty quick
haven't figured yet rape, incest –
could make smaller sizes for children
maybe we'd need something to guard
other animal life while the crisis lasts
tho the ancient greeks apparently
were tempted only by their own kind
