WHY WOMEN SHOULD STAY HOME TO RAISE THEIR YOUNG AND WHY MEN MUST NOT GO WHALING





WHY  WOMEN  SHOULD  STAY  HOME  TO  RAISE  THEIR YOUNG
AND  WHY  MEN MUST  NOT  GO  WHALING




Because they come back with fish stories
And those about the one who got away
If they went to Brokeback mountain
They come back with no fish at all

And Ishmael was just following
A great big sperm whale
Called Moby Dick
Through the great big
Vast unknowns of brine
When he was really looking
 For a fresh water stream
With a divining rod
That took him places
He’d never gone before
And he got lost
Trying to find himself
