The brave little sperm cell lay there
and a pathetic little thing
pondering his brief uneventful existence,
Delirium was setting in.
"I thought I could, I thought I could...
I dont want to anymore. Life just means more death"
When all of a sudden,
the cervical lining was awash with the most
A shimmering figure appeared before
the brave little sperm cell.
Why, It was mother nature!
Come to see what the matter was.
"Dear and brave little sperm cell, why do you despair so?
Can you not see you have travelled further and farther than the rest?
You are the sole survivor, and I designed you to do just that." she said.
"Oh sweet mother nature, why did you design me this way?
There is no point to existence at all,
life is just a sexually transmitted terminal disease!!!" the sperm spat at her
"You made us special, you gave us this power to hurt each other! And worse we have hurt you."
"Hurt me?" she gently inquired.
"Yes, hurt you, by killing and dispensing pain,
destroying each other and the world!
That is why I despair..." the sperm cell sobbed.
"Hush now little one" Mother Nature said, cradling the tadpole.
"You can never hurt me. You humans are very self-centered creatures,
and I made you exactly that way, exactly as you are. I am wiser and will still be here
even longer after the last human has died. You are not the first creatures of the earth
and you certainly wont be the last. This, I promise you.
You are special because you are intelligent, but for that you cannot see the miracle
that is your life dear and special little sperm cell."
"Why yes, you have survived this catastrophe but you have also survived countless wars and battles,
from previous versions of utesticle-opia.
The probability of you surviving now is so great, it is like watching oxygen turn into gold.
Now even I cannot do that." she smiled at the tadpole.
"But why did I survive mother nature? Why not any one of the others who were better than me at everything?"
"Because you thought you could.
Now, what will you do?" she said.
"I'm going to zion bitch!!!"
And with that, the brave little sperm cell wriggled and swam faster and harder
and by a miracle, achieved his life.
| THERE WAS MORE !!|
What an ending to an inspiring story, hahah. Is it weird to feel proud of a sperm cell? Maybe.

Being that each of us is born from such tenacious stuff ( or else we wouldn't be here!), it is amazing that so many give up once we've been here a short while! We should all take a lesson from our fishy little counterparts! |

grew to be a happy little zygote
whose contributions to humanity
consisted chiefly of a stubborn death grip
on his certitude that the battering ram of faith
can shatter the ineptitude of poor parenting
with the gentleness of a chainsaw...

"Life just means more death"....that may be true, but that's not the point. It's not the destination, but the journey itself that matters....
Time for a new trilogy: "The Brave Little Zygote"...lol

and a pathetic little thing..." just invited me in for a swim-along with this life struggle. Love the lite humor..."life is just a sexually transmitted terminal disease" and "previous versions of utesticle-opia." Thanks for sharing...

|| Posted on 2011-09-26 00:00:00 | by cornonthekob | [ Reply to This ] || I'm not a fan of the word "sperm", but your poem has introduced a whole new perspective. Towards the ending, I was actually fond of the word and I truly liked the last lines.|
|| Posted on 2011-09-25 00:00:00 | by AutumnLeaves | [ Reply to This ] || yes, we are very self-centered creatures...and yet somehow we survive..we have that instinct...we are strong little wiggly characters...|
and what might she say in the end.."it's not nice to fool mother nature!"
good strong ending to the trilogy..
and yes, we Do cause each other pain...self-centered as we are. Maybe there needs to be a cleaning of the womb, so we can start over from scratch.

I love the humor mixed up with the serious undertones. Quite the provocative trilogy.
Btw I love, "the sperm spat on her" lol wow
|| Posted on 2011-09-25 00:00:00 | by OneDarkFlame92 | [ Reply to This ] || Happy ending! First class drama for all ages and a child suitable moral to consider. Quite enjoyable and I'm sure you "killed" as you say. Thanks.||| Posted on 2011-09-25 00:00:00 | by Blue Monk | [ Reply to This ] || Lol I like this even though I usually don't comment on stuff like this. It has a lot of meaning. We can achieve anything that we want to do if we put our minds to it with determination and courage.|
-Anything is possible if you set your heart and mind to it-
Nicely written Pietro :)
