Random Poem:

Girls Have Balls Too

Turn the key, lock room 417.
Turn left,
descend the stairs,
vere left, and knock on 333.  
There you are in all you glory.  
Told Rosalind last week
and Chris a few hours before.  
Decided it on Tuesday,
Doing it on Saturday,
Have to do it on Saturday.  
Sign of the cross
looking you dead in the eyes;
“I love you.”
Look away,
go back to Battleship 1947,
All day long- in only your boxers-
“You look like hell”
