For Birth Sakes (April 27)
Mother of Frankenstein! I'm all for women's rights,
but I don't often telegraph  my opinions.
God grant me the right to speak generally ,
and talk of trivial things like my love for three oranges .
Don't let my horns be  too loud when I blow them -
I'm not in the Hall of Fame [5,6], and I would never go
to the country and slaughter  a calf.
I might draw cartoons of woodpeckers  though,
and I might be half of an odd couple, but I'm no medical examiner ,
and I'm certainly not the wife of a king .
I'm a fan of the love of a man and a woman ,
and like my football coach, I'm from the college of Hard Knox .
I listen to the American Top 40  constantly,
but sometimes it distracts me - once I went up the down staircase,
but I'm not afraid of Virginia Woolf .
You can sock it to me , you can show me the money ,
you can give me piano lessons or build fences  around me,
but if you want it, here it is - come and get it .
I'll roam if I want to, even to the love shack 
or Detroit Rock City, where I can rock and roll all nite .
Then I'll take the morning train, and be for your eyes only ,
I'll look as distinguished as a senator, or a booker  of getaways
even if I'm still in my morning jacket .
