  • The Doubtful Sperm (Acrostic)

    Through the tunnel, the egg-hounds race
    Hustling and jostling for first place.
    Each, propelled by its long tail's thrust,
    Drives to the reward until just
    One surges well clear of the rest.
    Unhindered now, he'll win the quest
    But wait! His head begins to swim
    Thoughts of his destiny plague him -
    Flash-forwards which make his hopes sink.
    Unconvinced, he begins to think,
    'Life's mine to claim but is this all?'
    Soon, his pace slacks to a slow crawl.
    Past him, to the prize, a second
    Egg-hound, keener to be fecund,
    Rolls and in it buries his head,
    Moulding my clay to life instead.

      Great fun to read and consider. I guess all we can do is open the gate- and may the best sperm win.i wonder if the fates bet on the race
