Newly Re-Discovered Shorts

Two poems from October 1999:

1. Highly Evolved

HOW does a man hit
     the middle of the bowl
     in the middle of the night
     in the dark?

2. The Difference

IF your child be son or daughter
     depends on how (s)he passes water.

If she is perchance the latter
     then she neatly voids her bladder.

But if he happens to be the first
     then his aim will be much worse.

    These are great. As the mother of three sons, I had to laugh at these.
