. We went to a gender reveal. And we had an exceptional meal. __But the host was forlorn __when she unhusked her corn. It was pink instead of blue-teal. Her emotions were on full display. They should have been tucked far away, __entrenched in her chest __or deep in her breast. It ruined her mood for the day. I swear that these things are a curse. Your money should stay in your purse. __You don’t need a cake __or confetti to rake. All you need is a suitable nurse. Millennial couples all shout: “We really can’t wait to find out!” __They can’t delay pleasure; __they must have the treasure. Unstable as bricks without grout. If your want overwhelms you won’t get. It’s a fact. It will make you upset. __It’s all up to God __who is good with a prod. So be grateful and thankful. Don’t fret. And wait for the final surprise. Despite all Modernity’s lies, __Biology’s easy. __The baby is cheesy. Turn it over and look with your eyes. . . Reid McGrath lives and writes in the Hudson Valley Region of New York.
