LEO MARKS ~ POET R12569
Much like dogs,
men will lower their voices
when they’re feeling dominant.
Nothing surprising there,
but you might find it of interest
that women prefer men with lower voices.
Especially during those fertile periods
of the menstrual cycle.
Oh yea, and scientists also found
that women preferred these baritones
when it came to brief sexual affairs.
This might explain why my friend Leo
scores more poon tang than I do.
In his youth,
Leo was what you might call a
Indeed, the rumor on the street was that at
sixth grade he had already grown hair
on his knuckles.
By second grade he was being asked
to use the men’s toilets,
as it was feared that other boys exposure
to his premature manhood
might cause deep Freudian psycho-trauma.
Baby-sitting for Leo became a costly affair
as it quickly became apparent
his parents would have to hire a third person
to be present as chaperone.
Oh, I see you raise your eyebrows in
confounded disbelief but
when at nine months in,
the third babysitter in row
found herself looking for
her own babysitter, well…
action had to be taken.
The question was:
how do you suppress the rampant libido
of a testicular dynamo
whose every sexual encounter
was the equivalent of
the Yanks hitting Omaha Beach?
Yank after Yank after Yank spewing forth
from waves of turbo charged
amphibious landing craft.
Every woman’s crotch was Normandy
and his phallus
Sure, Leo could have been sequestered away
in monastic solitude but
what spiritual mandate of
could hope to tourniquet
his copious fluid passion?
What was it?
What was it that finally curbed Leo’s feral libido?
If his dog was limited
to a defined array of fire hydrants,
what was it that gave us the short leash?
Was it his lifetime subscription to Martha Stewart?
His IPod hardwired to Barry Mantilow?
what was it?
I’ll tell you what.
At some point in Leo’s seminal life,
some evil son of a bitch introduced him
You heard me right. Po-et-ry!
And just what do you think poetry does
to a man’s sperm count? Hum?
YOU say Leo is the same growling dog he always was.
You say he lifts his leg just like in those days of yore.
That Leo Marks his territory
with every guttural utterance.
And yet all that flows from his pencil is ink.
The lead’s long gone.
This dog is nutted.
Oh so eunich…tified!
Because I’m a lesser man,
I cry for Leo.
He that was in many ways bigger than life-size
(in more ways than one)
has shriveled away to nothing.
And I ask you:
What is poetry but low down squat to pee?
For the sake of all things testosterone,
take away his pen
and give that dog a bone!

Hi from a premature baby born in 1967
I have been surfing the web for some time, and I wanted to sign your petition but was unsure as to what to write! I would like to tell you my story for your site to see if I can help.
I was born in April 1967, six weeks early, weighing 2lbs 15oz. I was expected to die the night I was born and I was in an incubator for 6 weeks.
I feel my precarious start in life has had an effect on me. Having read various information from your site and others, some things ring true, learning difficulties, bad eyesight, weak leg etc I believe are all due to my early start in life. I am only 5' tall too! Perhaps I am thinking of this more as I will be 40 in a few weeks.
Having had 2 healthy children to term, weighing 6lbs 6oz and 6lbs 10oz both were normal deliveries - and having read my baby book I realize how behind I was regarding development - I have caught up in the end, over come dyslexia and even got a good design degree. When I tell people, I know, with children they are stunned at how little I weighed at birth and survived. I think my mother had pre-eclampsia and may have smoked but I am not sure of the latter. I have also survived a rare form of skin cancer too!
I have read your information and have often wondered why statistics and research started in the late 1980's when I was in my 20's to track the effects of being born prematurely. Please can you put me in touch with any other people with a similar experience to myself if you know any! I would be quite fascinated to meet some one else. Do you have any statistics dating from the 1960's about the survival rates of premature babies, from what I have read I am pretty lucky!!
As I am approaching my 40th Birthday I am trying to look upon my prematurity as a really positive thing rather than a disability.
I would like to help your charity - even if it is just my story! All the message boards seem to support parents of premature babies, but not the babies themselves or when they are older. And none for the mature premature baby!
I really would be grateful of any information that you could give me.
